I had a three night stay at Summer Hill and could not have had a more enjoyable break. Mike and Patsy were fabulous hosts and they have created a wonderfully comfortable B & B. They have a professionalism which comes across as relaxed but belies the hard work they clearly put into making Summer Hill a very special place to stay. Patsy's art adds a subtle sophistication to the ambience and I was delighted to have the opportunity to leave with cards printed from her originals. Next visit I'll definitely buy a 'proper' picture. I would also like to mention Patsy's delicious homemade cakes and her sublime chocolate truffles, which were temptingly placed in my room. Mike's sense of humour ensured every morning got off to a cheerful start.
All things considered I could recommend a holiday at Summer Hill unreservedly.
