We have just returned from two nights' in the Oast House at Godwin House. We had a wonderful stay.The accommodation was comfortable and full of character. The room was well equipped, with great attention to detail including a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers. There was a wide variety of teas and coffee with fresh milk in a little fridge, plus a jar of nibbles. Corinna and Sean were most welcoming: drinks were offered on arrival which was a lovely touch; Sean made us a reservation for an evening meal and even offered to drive us there so that we both could have a drink - we didn't take him up on the offer but it was above and beyond the call of duty! The breakfasts were fantastic - fruit, cereals, yoghurts, porridge, one of the best full English breakfasts ever, scrambled egg and smoked salmon, home made bread, jams and marmalade. The whole experience put most hotels to shame. Fantastic!
