My booking was a very last minute one,over the Easter Weekend, and I am so pleased that I chose The Old Farriers. It is hidden away yet easy to find and a stones throw from Gold Hill and the Old Abbey Walk.
Dorothy is the most amazing host you will ever find, a delightful, lovely lady, nothing is too much trouble.
The room I had was the double, with its own private bathroom, beautifully furnished. Having your own entrance to the room made it very private indeed. I have not relaxed so quickly in any place I have visited in the world as I did here, I stayed for two nights and wished it was longer. I returned home feeling completely relaxed.
The view from the bedroom is remarkable, the peace and tranquility is fabulous.
The breakfast that Dorothy made, was as good as any 5 star hotel, from a Continental breakfast to a full English, as much or as little as you wanted.
I know that I will recommend Dorothy and The Old Farriers to my family and friends, and I will most definately return there.
