We stayed here during Jan 2014. The guest house was amazing. It is located in the middle of a working farm next to river Wensom which is great fun to explore with the children. Inside the farm house it was pure luxury. We loved the Carrick room with its free standing bath and our two children shared the Carrick fox room. We also had our own fridge which was great for a tipple or two. We relaxed and played games in the drawing room with an open fire and ate two amazing breakfasts with local produce. We ate in one evening and we were treated to local sauages and mash with homemade crepes and chocolate sauce for the children and the most delicious lemon meringue pie I'd ever had (sorry Aunty Lin!) The house was filled with historic family photos and ornaments with views from every room of the countryside and river. A fantastic place to stay either as a couple or a family. Also it is a short walk to the Darby public house which is great fun at night with a torch!
