Sue and her husband Paul run this rather small (three rooms) B&B in their home located at the end of the lane in Marlow. We had the upstairs family room which included a double bed and a twin bed. We were surprised to find that it was not en suite but we had failed to ask in advance and since no one else was in the establishment we had the bathroom down the hall to ourselves. Sue keeps a very clean house and the room had all the amenities one would expect. We used it for our final night before leaving England from Heathrow Airport, a 30 minute ride from their home. They suggested we walk to the Three Horseshoes, a local pub in Marlow. Unfortunately, the last portion of the walk was across ta farmer's field that had just been plowed. We had to turn around and walk back to the B&B and take the car losing about 20 minutes. If she makes that suggestion, and you decide to walk wear rugged shoes, take a flashlight and be prepared for mud. Also, we were there in September and it would have been dark on our return making the walk very difficult indeed.
Sue served an excellent breakfast and we had the opportunity to get to know she and her husband Paul, an actor who has been in a number of television programs including several that have been broadcast on PBS in the United States. The day we arrived he had been working on the program called Endeavor, a spinoff from the old detective program, Morse. He also has been on Downton Abbey and other programs we have seen. By the time we left, we felt we were part of the family.
