I have to say that this has probably been my most enjoyable B&B experience. Now, I will also say that it may not be everyone's cup of tea but if you are into old world charm and character you will not find a finer B&B.
Chris also is an antique dealer and as he said to me, "I must be a bad one", because the rooms are filled with the most amazing furniture and well, just great stuff. Then of course, there are the four poster beds.
Make sure you take the time to walk around the gardens too. Stunning.
The B&B is on a very quiet country lane which was just perfect for us. At night there is no noise at all.
Finally the breakfast was superb. We ate in another room filled with antiques at a huge table which I assumed must be another one of Chris's finds. The pork sausages I had were made from produce reared at the property too.
The only negative was that Jessica the cat was a bit grumpy when I tried to give her a pat.
Seriously though, you will love it.
