Stayed two nights over the May Day bank holiday. We received a very warm welcome from John and Sue, and taken to our room (no.2) where we immediately felt relaxed and able to unwind after our three and a half hour journey as we enjoyed tea and cake. The room was spotless, and the bathroom large and we spent a peaceful night in the comfortable bed. Breakfast the next morning was delicious, perfectly cooked with plenty of choice and alternatives. The care and attention to detail in the room made it a pleasure to spend time there which I did Sunday afternoon "working" whilst sitting at the window admiring the lovely garden and views of open pasture beyond, whilst my husband was off on a photography course for the day. We have stayed in a number of B&B's over the years and this was by far one of the best. Thanks to Sue and John - the perfect hosts. Thoroughly recommended.
