Bertie and Gerard exude hospitality from every pore. From breakfast through to recommendations through to a glass of port at night, they are always waiting
The house is charming. We opted for the suite and were not disappointed. A sitting area comes complete with fridge, cutlery and plates along with coffee/tea making facilities and TV. There is a bathroom with claw and ball feet bath and walk-in shower. Beanie has even installed a small night light in the bathroom to ensure that no feet are stubbed on any nocturnal visit. It appears that this suite is a new feature but it has been completed in full sympathy with the rest of this arts and craft house with lots of wood and features.
The breakfast is cooked to order. Guests sit around the table and thus able to share their experiences. Gerard offers small or large portions. With the fruit, cereals, toast etc. this provides a good boost to the day. Beanie keeps the tea and coffee flowing.
This is a definite find.
