My wife and I stayed one night and we were made very welcoming even before entering the front door. It is a typical country cottage and one in which you an feel comfortable straight away. Both Lorna and Carl treated us like old friends. We stayed in the King Alfred room which was beautifully furnished as was the on suite bathroom. We had a very comfortable nights sleep and rounded it off in the morning with an excellent breakfast, which included homemade bread and eggs from her own chickens, what more could you ask for. They even offered to run us to the Birthday party we were going to in Gillingham.
We would both highly recommend this B and B, it's the standard that all B and B's should strive to reach.
We would definitely use them again.
