Having been recommended to us by friends, we decided to give Old Stoney bank Guest house a try .Pleased we did, because it is one of the best places we have visited.
Warmly greeted by owner Anne and made to feel at home from the outset, in her beautiful house. Luxurious furnishings equalled only by 5* hotels. Found everything very clean and comfortable (especially the bed). Initially thought it was a little strange not having locks on the bedroom doors, but soon relaxed and felt like we were staying in a friends house.
The house is in a beautiful setting, with a large well-stocked garden. Would like to return in the summer when it is at its best. Enjoyed breakfast in the conservatory. Choice of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, juice and of course full English, not to forget toast and delicious homemade jams.
Enjoyed the large lounge with log burning stove and Sky TV. So comfortable, Tony fell asleep in one of the armchairs!
Thanks again Anne, we will certainly go back.
