Bassets B&B
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We stayed in Celia and Richard's exceptional B & B for 4 nights and enjoyed every moment. The room and en suite were spotless and very well equipped; the breakfasts were wonderful and kept us going until each evening; and the village is enchanting. Celia and Richard are perfect hosts and we shall definitely return.

Room Tip: We had the superior en suite. Wonderful views.

Bassets B&B is a great B&B- when first arrived we were greeted by Celia and showed our room and offered tea/coffee and cake, after a long drive that was just what we needed.....thanks. The room was nice and big and had a lovely en suite. The breakfast was delicious, cereals, home-made bread & jams, fresh fruit and a fully cooked breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.

My fiancée booked myself and my step-dad in here as a surprise birthday treat so I could spend the weekend at Tank Fest, all I can say is they are the most welcoming and friendly hosts I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They couldn't do enough for us, even booking a table at the local pub for us in the evening. The place is spotlessly clean,room was spacious and had everything we required including a very large en-suite. Breakfast, well just one word ...Awesome!!!! Will definitely be back but this time with Fiancée in tow! lol. Thank you Celia & Richard for making my birthday treat that bit more special.

We were overwhelmed with the quality of the accommodation and the welcome we received when we stayed and, having been fortunate enough to get away a couple of times since, nothing has even come close in comparison. Celia was an excellent host, the breakfast was delicious and the bed was exactly what we needed after our long cycle. I'm just sorry we didn't stay longer!

Our three day break with my elderly father was in the best B&B that we have visited. Our rooms were immaculately decorated and spotlessly clean. The bathrooms were to the highest standard. The beds were extremely comfortable ensuring a good quality night's sleep. The choice of items for breakfast was extensive and Celia, our host, was always willing to cater for our individual tastes with gluten free cereal on offer. All items are locally sourced and the eggs are from their own hens. Celia and Richard were very welcoming and we thoroughly to recommend Bassets.

Lovely B&B, positioned in an almost fairy tale setting.
Owners were friendly and welcoming.
Room was spotless (and had one of the best showers I've experienced in a B&B/Hotel!!)
Chickens in the back garden a bonus :)
Breakfast was amazing.
Shame we only stayed for one night.

Bassets B&B is set in a quaint little village - when first arrived we were greeted by Celia and showed our room and offered tea/coffee. The room we were in was more than adequate, it was a huge room with an en suite. It had been recently renovated and was beautiful. The afternoon tea and coffee was served with biscuits and some fruit cake. Richard and Celia were very friendly and were extremely helpful in suggesting somewhere good for dinner - we went to an amazing pub. The breakfast was delicious, cereals, home-made bread & jams, fresh fruit and a fully cooked breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.
