Stayed here for one night to attend a wedding nearby, and loved our stay. In the end there were nine of us, with two couples staying two nights. Arrival late afternoon was lovely as some of them were already there and it was like going into a friends house. We chose to have a Chinese take away in the evening (although there was a variety of places to eat within walking distance), having had a wonderful tea prepared by Tracey, and breakfast was superb - my husband says the home baked ham deserves a special mention!. None of us felt that we needed a cooked breakfast, Tracey's bread, cake and scones were divine, and on top of that we all had trays in our room with more home made biscuits. Our rooms were all lovely, spotlessly clean with modern bathrooms. My elderly Mother was in The Cat, which does not have an en-suite bathroom, but it is only a few steps along the landing, and she was quite happy, although in fairness, we were all family and friends. We laughed at the wardrobe - which is old - and has a message on it to the effect that it is awaiting refurbishment, but the shelves and hanging rail are all there, so what's the problem?! As you can tell, we were all very happy, and hope to return some time. Great location, and Tracey was such a good hostess and so friendly, so lots of information about the area. Look at their website and book direct, you will not be disappointed!
