On the basis of reviews on trip adviser I booked this place for our 30th wedding anniversary road trip in July 2013. We stayed 2 nights in the green room and were made most welcome from the moment we arrived. The hotel only has a few rooms - 4 I think, could be wrong - but they are beautifully decorated in Georgian style and are well furnished. There is a welcome pack in the room, including some sherry, if I recall.
In the morning we had breakfast on the terrace overlooking the garden, accompanied by the owners' two dogs and several chickens which I loved. It was so relaxing we wanted to stay sitting there all day. The breakfast was fantastic, fresh fruit aplenty, wide range of cereals, croissants etc. I had scrambled eggs and smoked salmon and my wife had haddock, both cooked superbly. I give this place 11 out of 10, fantastic, better than excellent!!!
