Thanks Annie (and Presley) for our lovely weekend break. Very comfortable bed, and we loved all the little extras that you provided. The place was spotless, you must work extremely hard to maintain that level of cleanliness. Brigitte and Martin

Very warm reception and helpful response to some bicycle problems we had. Wonderful accommodation, just as you see it on-line. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice in a stunning dining room. We hope to return one day.

This is the second time I've stayed here. Quaint old house with lots of knick-knacks everywhere. Owner (Annie) is charming and very accommodating. Comfortable rooms, bathrooms, accommodation. Order breakfast the night before for a custom fare. Fresh fruit, eggs, etc. This place is a keeper!

Room Tip: One large king room with giant bath across hall. Two smaller rooms with ensuite.

How lovely of you to review - though the "quaint old house with lots of knick-knacks" had me thinking I had moved to a parallel universe :) You're a delight to look after and you have me in stitches all the time so please come back soon! Thanks again. x

Quite simply brilliant. Attention to detail, house, interior design, breakfast, restaurants nearby.

I even forgot a shirt and Annie posted it back to me neatly folded.

Highly recommend.

Annie phoned me prior to my visit to ask whether I had any special requirements for breakfast .. smoked salmon and scrambled egg, full english whatever sir would like! The quality of the ingredients for breakfast was superb as was the cook

You get Review/Reviewer of the Month! Wow, many thanks indeed. And really brilliant to know that our efforts in providing the best possible breakfast around are being recognised and appreciated. Thinking about adding a Japanese breakfast into the mix too - had it in New York and was blown away. Craster kippers are a winner here at the moment though and well deserved. Anyhow, fantastic review, fantastic guest - please come again! And next time I'll know to remind you about packing your shirts:) Thanks again.

Spent 2 nights here and what a place. Amazing decor and faultlessly clean all round. The breakfast was as good as it gets and Annie made us feel very welcome. The surrounding countryside is lovely with countless beautiful villages with quality pubs and cafes.

What a wonderful b&b, we were made to feel very welcome by Annie who greeted us at the gate, our rooms were fantastic and extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean, the food was fresh straight from a local farm, everything we could have wished for and more I would highly recommend this fantastic Hertford gem.
A heart felt thanks from Julia Dickenson and family X

Room Tip: We stayed in the superior room which had a fabulous Italian bed in, which I would have loved to take...
