Being a Professor in history Ansdore guest house was a treat - with its historical background, a beautiful open 'inglenook' fireplace and dark wooden beams throughout, yet all the facilities of the modern world - our stay was both comfortable and interesting. Although we faced traffic problems on arrival and were therefore very late (gone midnight), the husband and wife kindly arranged for us to let ourselves in and we were able to make a deserved cup of tea in our room, which was much appreciated. Breakfast was full English but when my wife (a vegetarian) asked for an alternative, the helpful hosts kindly offered cereal and scrambled eggs on toast. One evening we borrowed a torch and walked to the local pub (The Compasses, also beautiful and historical) to eat some traditional home-cooked, hearty food. The second evening we drove 3 miles to the 'Timber Batts' (also known as 'Froggies') a french restaurant housed in a beautiful public house with an open fire - really top quality food-surprised it's not Michelin starred. All in all, our weekend break at Ansdore was very enjoyable and relaxing indeed. A super break from the hectic city life.
