We stayed here for with friends and all agreed that one night is too short a stay. The house is beautiful and our welcome could not have been warmer from John and Janey. Our bedrooms were comfortable, large and really thoughtfully furnished - from alarm clocks and bedside lights on both bedside tables through to a well stocked tea tray and toiletries.
We were offered tea and scones on arrival and took these in the large sittiing room downstairs and were encouraged to make ourselves at home. After a reasonable meal at the Derby Arms (kindly booked for us at very short notice by John) we enjoyed a bottle of wine we'd brought with us in the sitting room and it made for a wonderfully relaxing evening. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and plentiful. This stay was a delight, Summerhow is a real gem and I hope to revisit soon.
