Home cooked breakfasts so tasty and wholesome that we booked for supper too! Hosts were very friendly without being intrusive. Rooms spotless and tastefully decorated. Very conveniently located for Salisbury, Stonehenge and Longleat.

Perfect location for visiting Salisbury, Winchester and surrounding areas. We stayed here for two nights on the fantastic KGB offer, which included a delicious home cooked evening meal and two excellent breakfasts. The room was very clean with a particularly comfortable bed. The owners were extremely warm, friendly and very helpful. We would therefore definitely recommend this place to stay.

We stayed here for our anniversary for 2 nights and were really impressed. The room was large and the bed was sooooo comfy - amazing matress! The owners were lovely and really helpful but it was the breakfasts that were the wow factor. The menu was extensive - the usual toast, cereal and full english and options of salmon, kippers, herby mushrooms, poached eggs etc and much more. Most of the produce is grown/made/cooked on site and it all tasted really good. Oh and also the visitors book in the bedroom was the most comprehensive i've ever seen! Thanks for a great stay :)

We booked this two night break with a KBG voucher. When first arrived we thought how lovely the setting was and how it had a homley feel to it. Once inside we were greeted by Nick, who made us both feel very welcome. He explained every thing to us and showed us to our room. The room was beautiful, very clean and tastefully decorated. We had had a long and awful journey so we decided to book a table and eat in. We were not disappointed at all my partner had the creamy mushrooms in garlic for a starter (which he only got to half of because I ate the rest) they were amazing I had home made garlic bread. Amazing!!! We both had main meals which were lovely as well, but the best part of the meal was the pudding we had zesty lemon sponge with mango ice cream. I thought I had died and gone to heaven it was that good.If you do stay here, it a must!!! The only negative we can really say is that the bacon on the breakfast the first morning wasnt cooked how we like it, but thats us. We spoke to nick the following morning and we had perfect bacon. Nick and Jayne couldnt do enough for us. It was well worth the money.... on our return Nick had sent us a lovely email thanking us.We will be planning another trip down that end soon and hope to stay at Lancers house again!!!

Room Tip: If you like to warm and cosy ask for a ground floor room, as the windows dont open...

We booked this 2 night weekend break with a KGB voucher.
The bedroom although small was clean and tidy and had a very welcoming feel to it and the advantage of free internet.
The room had a shower rather than a bath but again it was clean and tidy.
Dinner on the 1st night was excellent and was cooked by Jayne and served by Nik.
Breakfast on both days was excellent with home baked bread, home made jams and marmalade, home made muesli and a full English breakfast made from local produce and again cooked by Jayne and served by Nik.
In fact the eggs come from their chickens that roam a field close to the car park.
I must say that Nik and Jayne make you extremely welcome and are " hands on" not like some other hotels.
In all it was a pleasant stay and well worth the money.

We stayed one night at Lancers house and wished we could have stayed longer. The house has plenty of character and has been very tastefully decorated. Our room was a good size and very comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed talking with Nik about the history of the house. We had dinner as well as breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed all the home-made food. Our only small disappointment was that at both meals food was served on cold plates and so did not stay warm for very long.
