We only stayed for two nights but the next time we visit it will be for longer! The house itself is in a fabulous location in a very pretty little village but only a short drive away from all the 'sights'. The stone house is stunning to look at from the outside and has been refurbished by the current owners to a very high standard. The room (we stayed in the Sherbourne) was beautiful, well dressed and immaculately clean. The en suite shower room was spotless and very tastefully decorated. The breakfasts are superb - lots to choose from, locally sourced produce and well cooked! I liked the fact that there was a toaster in the breakfast conversatory so you could make as much as you wanted, at whatever time you wanted. Caroline is a superb hostess, who is not only friendly but has an excellent knowledge of the area and is able to point out many hidden gems which you may have otherwise missed. Sadly, our stay ended far too soon but we will definitely be going back soon!
