This is a lovely B&B with owners who are so accommodating and friendly that nothing seems too much bother. I arrived after a nightmare journey and was going to be late for a commitment in town; within minutes my host had sorted me out a map and called a taxi. (There was a delicious smell of baking bread as I arrived - a wonderful aroma to come in to.) On return it's a very pleasant 20 minute walk from town, past the race-course and over the river. The area itself is quiet and leafy, and easy to navigate.
The garden behind the building is glorious, with fantastically quirky topiary! Plenty of parking space, too. My room, although small, was filled with all sorts of thoughtful touches; hand cream, bottled water, face-wipes, etc etc. There was a varied tea and coffee selection, which included generous amounts of biscuits, Galaxy hot chocolate etc. The only thing I might have wished for is a couple of nice toiletries in the bathroom, as there was a multi-purpose gel in the shower rather than separate shampoo and soap. My room was at the back of the house and looked onto the quiet garden, so I had a good night's sleep.
A delicious cooked breakfast in the morning was ready at a pre-arranged time, and the dining room was well-stocked with fruit, yoghurts, juices and cereals.
At Homeleigh I really did feel like I was staying in someone's home. This is the kind of B&B which, thanks to the kindness and thoughtfulness of its hosts, makes me want to travel in England much more! I hope to stay here again one day.
