A place where you'd want to wrap yourself up for the night, after that long bike ride through some very charming English country side! Cindy and Ken do everything to make it just the right setting for travel enthusiasts. Denehurst has an edge over all the bnbs I have been to so far. Very high standards of detail maintained to care for the guests' comfort. To name a few, they had list of local resturants and personal recommendations on each of them; a wine bottle opener in the room; little notes all over the bath area requesting guests to be judicious about material usage; a nice TV - flat screen, dvd player and the works; hence a collection of movies to choose from to watch; a teddy in your room to welcome you AND so on... Cindy even called the cycle hire guys for us and we hadn't even requested for a call to be placed! They are warm and instantly make you feel at home. Great hosts and a great house too, a Victorian, quite old and very very charming!
As for the basics, the room was spic and span, as was the rest of the common area. Breakfast was very nice despite us being vegetarian. I loved the tea! It is a good ten minute walk (downhill) from the train station, while the lake is another ten-fifteen minutes, downhill again.
Many thanks to Ken and Cindy for sending across my cellphone, all the way to Northampton! Rather nice of them!
Am so glad we picked this place, made our holiday better than great :) My hubby says one night was not good enough, we should go back for more next time :) Cant wait for that!!
