We stayed as a group of three families after a wedding reception about three miles away. Our party included a three year old toddler and a six-month old baby. The room my wife and I chose (for the price!) on the ground floor, as I have a painful knee, was quaint and cosy - with a small, but adequate separate shower and loo within, homely furnishings including lavishly thick curtains - and the bed felt luxurious. My daughter's family, including the baby, chose a bright room with modern bathroom and fireplace - very nice, while my son's family chose another ground floor room (the Family Room) with direct access to the extensive and well-managed garden - we are gardening enthusiasts and had no idea how impressive the garden was until after breakfast - which in itself was a treat for us all. Thinking ahead, our obviously experienced hosts had arranged several tables together in order that our complete party could sit as one and we all thoroughly enjoyed it, including the baby. Plenty of choice, high quality fare and as much as we could eat - with attentive, but not intrusive, service. Overall - excellent - will always make this our first choice for a Salisbury B&B.
