Firstly, to all of the people who wrote previous reviews, thank you... you described a guest house that absolutely matched the type of getaway that we wanted for a home away from home. And to Trevor and Penny, thank you so much for your hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The house is beautiful, having taken painstaking years to refurbish with amazing attention to detail. The rooms are a good size and very well laid out. Do not expect a TV or radio, but do expect fruit, snacks and plentiful bottled water. The bathrooms are well stocked with toiletries and towels. Despite the temperature hitting at least -5C and snow outside, the rooms were lovely and warm.

Breakfast is a vegan feast, with organic breads and make-your-own muesli ingredients, yoghurt, fresh fruit, juices, and more traditional (organic) cereals. Trevor makes sure that you have everything that you want.

There is a lounge that you can use (with a TV if you need it) and Penny and Trevor check in on you every so often, asking if you want a cup of tea.

We brought our dog who is a younger and more boisterous version of 'the boys' (Rummy and Buller). They are beautiful flat-coat retrievers who are super friendly. Penny and Trevor make sure that they do not dominate the house in the way some pet-friendly guest houses can be over-run. And yet you can tell the boys are a big and beautiful part of the family.

Penny and Trevor have put a great deal of thought into the experience they want people to have of their home. They are deliberate in choosing to advertise as a vegan b&b when others advertise as 'vegan-friendly'. They are also very deliberate in the attention to detail in the surroundings and facilities, so that there isn't much that you could suggest will improve the place... and if there are things missing (again the TVs in rooms thing), that is also deliberate.

I would recommend the Bay Tree to couples looking for a quiet and comfortable stay-away; to families with children who will find the house and garden great fun; to dog-owners who will be made to feel very welcome; and to breakfast-eaters everywhere, whether you are vegan or not. You will not be disappointed.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the BayTree for a one night stay in January. What a wonderful, beautiful place to stay! We were greeted on entry with extreme warmth and hospitality. The building has gone through extensive restoration and no expense has been spared, it's truly wonderful. The breakfast was great, a dazzling array of cereals, excellent artisan bread and loads of fresh fruit. This is a vegan hotel, my girlfriend is a vegan but I am not, and this was not a problem whatsoever. There was more choice, better choice than I have ever received in any non-vegan oriented hotels, I was truly spoilt. The bedroom was beautiful with loads of original features, and a lovely big comfy bed. In the lounge is the most amazing fireplace I have ever seen! The couple that run the hotel are warm, friendly and inviting, you know that these people are doing this because they want to, not because they have to and therefore the happiness and brilliance of the place shines through. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who asked, with no reservations whatsoever! GO!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Book in advance if you have a dog as not all rooms are available to dog owners, which is also a good thing for those who are not as it means you dont have to be in a room that has had a dog in it if you do not want to.

Just like to echo the other reviews - had such a lovely time at Bay Tree House. The house is stunning - beautiful antique furniture, lovingly restored rooms, and the hosts Trevor and Penny are just so welcoming and friendly. I had a gorgeous room with its own bathroom, with an enormous shower, felt very luxurious. Very quiet and a blissful couple of nights sleep in the comfy bed. The array of food available at breakfast was such a treat, from cereals with soya/rice/oat milk, to a wide array of fresh fruit, breads, spreads and toast etc, and lovely quality coffee.

Very highly recommended!

Room Tip: My room was on the first floor (second floor in US English) - a slightly smaller double than others in the house but has its own luxurious bathroom a few paces away.

Bay Tree House is one of the best places my husband and I have stayed in over four years of international travel. The house is breathtaking. The rooms are beautiful. We were given a warm welcome and the proprietors could not have been more accommodating. They went to extra effort to address specific food allergies and were beyond obliging when it came to making our stay as comfortable as could be.
