Well what can I say? This is a hidden gem which I almost want to keep a secret. My Wife and I enjoyed Steve and Julie's hospitality as though we were long lost friends, the accommodation is superb and spotless, to rival any top class country hotel throughout this fair isle of ours, who could learn a thing or two about the attention to detail which you find at The Old Shoulder Of Mutton.
Nothing is too much trouble and Steve & Julies passion to make you feel welcome is evident as soon as you walk in.
The location is superb, and the Village Pub, The Old Bowling Green, run by Dave & Marilyn is brilliant, with a host of local ales and great simple British grub done brilliantly.
Steve also runs a vintage car adventure tour business which is amazing and there are so many country activities locally that you are spoilt for choice.
The Old Shoulder Of Mutton does not allow children and hosts couples or singles only, which was absolutely perfect for us as a couple whose offspring have flown the nest leaving us to enjoy a little peace and quiet from time to time.
My only criticism is that we can't keep this wonderful guesthouse a secret from you all.
Go and stay, and tell them Christian and Jane sent you!!
