My husband and I stayed in the B&B overnight on the 23 July in order to take part in the wine tasting tour. The room was really lovely, very clean, lovely comfortable bed and a delightful victorian bath and shower. The bath is huge and the shower a real experience (it also has a modern shower head so you don't miss out on anything). We found the staff to be very helpful and it was made quite clear to us that breakfast finished at 9.30 and we were asked at what time we would like it. There is a lovely garden and a small swimming pool and hot tub (which is not made clear enough on the website, please take note owners as I did not know to take a swimming costume). The sitting room is very comfortable and homey and the breakfast room very pretty and the breakfast was freshly cooked and very nice indeed. We did indeed also have sour milk in the fridge so couldn't make coffee but I am quite sure that it was fresh when the housekeeper put it in there as we made tea when we arrived and that was fine. I think it must have been that the fridge didn't work very well. She is certainly not the sort of person who wouldn't care whether it was fresh or not. We had such a nice stay that we didn't even mention it. My only negative thought was that the bedroom curtain lining could do with replacing just to make the room perfect. The tour was also really nice, lots of lovely tastings, not just wine but beer and liquers also. Would certainly recommend and it's in such a pretty part of the country too, lots of lovely pubs and walks nearby.
