“Now That's What I Call A B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

We've just had a 2 week 'staycation' all over England. This was without a doubt the best B&B we stayed in, and outshone a few of the hotels too. Not the chepaest place we stayed, but beautiful room, comfortable bed and fantastic bathroom made it worthwhile.

Don't want to give too many details in case it spoils the experience of discovering the place for yourself, but if this B&B is on your route and they can take you - book it - I doubt you will be disappointed. Great restaurant a few miles away as well.

This is as close to the perfect B&B as you can get: lovely house, beautiful, quiet room, superb bed, luxurious bathroom, all immaculately clean and classy, delightful but non-intrusive family and delicious freshly cooked breakfast with plenty of choice.
Ideally placed for stopping off while travelling by car and the recommendation for food at a nearby inn was sound - good quality and value.
This enterprise deserves to be highly successful.

We stayed here after a last minute change to our cycling trip and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this b&b. It is by far the best b&b we have ever stayed in! We were made to feel very welcome by the owner and stayed in a very luxurious room. The room was beautiful - spacious, amazing views and a lovely bathroom. The breakfast was fantastic, fresh and delicious! A real treat!
