I had to be quick with the booking as this establishment seems to enjoy a high occupancy rate because of the superb reviews. AA 4 stars and Julie was nominated to be the Most Friendly Landlady award . I was not disappointed when I got to there. It just ticked all of my usual check list: clean, quiet, a good bed and the car park thrown in. I was staying there on business and the easy access from the motor way was essential: ticked here, too. The property must have been a very nice family home and it still retains that feel of homeliness but managed with the professionalism. The lounge with a TV, a fruit basket and all comfy arm chairs is available, completely separate from the lovely breakfast room, which seems to be an extension with the windows all round overlooking the well maintained garden. (This would be a very useful space for a small conference of probably up to a dozen people. A very pleasant venue.) As to the bedrooms, as far as I could snoop around, they are mostly twins. Mine was. They are not that spacious, I must admit, however, decorated with a good taste and everything is kept in a pristine condition. In a compact bathroom with a shower cubicle, I found a generous collection of amenities. And it’s so quiet. I was there for 3 nights and never was I disturbed by any noise. My colleague from London said “It’s too quiet!” Breakfast – I can’t find any more words to praise it than so many that have already been posted in the past reviews. The Cumberland sausage was memorably good, and a vegetarian breakfast is available, too. I had my eggs both scrambled and fried, and looking at my colleague's poached eggs, too, I could see Julie was professional at it. No paper napkins, nor polyester table cloths. Julie’s pal, Stacey makes sure that everyone is happy in a very charming way. So all in all, I had a very pleasant stay and decided that this would be my first choice of accommodation if I am to be back in this area.
