I stayed at the B&B at Sarum College for two nights (7/13 and 7/14). It was a modest room that was clean and just right for me. It had an electric tea pot with plenty of tea, coffee, sugar, creamer, etc. What a treat it all was. Now, lets talk about the view. Out my window, were the English rooftops and chimneys that you picture when you think of England. Let's add Salisbury Cathedral just beyond the rooftops. It was truly a breath-taking view. I especially enjoyed the sign reminding you to not leave your windows open as the pigeons will fly in. Too funny.
The staff were cordial and accommodating. I especially want to acknowledge Linda Cooper who coordinated the group that I was originally with and then went out of her way to accommodate me as well. She gave me a very fair discount and then great directions to the bus stop when I was leaving. If you are looking for an experience that you will remember with gladness and gratefulness, Sarum College B&B is the place for you. The picture above is exactly what the room looked like that I stayed in.
Thank you Sarum College for your kindness and hospitality. You made me feel so welcome.
