This delightful B&B was booked for us as a stopover on our Rail-trail cycling tour from Cromwell to Middlemarch. Trish and Fred made us feel like family from the moment we arrived. The superbly appointed bedrooms with ensuites are upstairs via a seperate entrance from the hosts quarters. In the hallway off the bedrooms was a casual reading / relaxing area, which also housed a well appointed "wall kitchen", providing a selection of teas, coffees and delicious home made breads and preserves.
Dinner was a gourmet experience and followed pre dinner drinks. This was the only B&B where we were able to dine with our hosts which really added to the great experience. After our English breakfast, with freshly laid eggs, home preserves etc, Fred drove us to the cycle depot, after firstly showing us the local wineries.
A truly great start to our holiday.
