I stayed here on the recommendation of a local, whilst I was working in a nearby town, whose four star hotel is too haughty, pricey and made too many mistakes on my several stays there.
Lower Severalls Farmhouse is an absolute delight and, even for the jaded business traveller is a real tonic to return to after work, with good, free Wi-Fi (sadly necessary for all of the evening Emailing), a truly capacious room with tables to work at, a sofa to sink in to and a very comfy bed. There are many additional, thoughtful and welcome touches ('fridge in the room with fresh milk, a small kitchenette area with microwave combi oven, cafetiere with ground coffee, towelling robes, slippers etc, etc).
Mary and Mike are friendly, unobtrusive hosts who offer a personal service and a quality of offering that outstrips the many four star hotels I stay in as part of my job. If I could stay in a place like this every time, being on the road would be an absolute pleasure.
It is a bonus that there is a very good and well priced bar and restaurant (Haselbury Mill) literally just over the road.
One small point is that signage could be clearer. There's lots of it, so you know that you are in the vicinity, but clearer direction signs guiding one from the main road would be helpful (I should say that Mary did Email me a map of how to find them). This really is detail though.
Summary - a high quality, very comfortable, quiet place that exceeded my expectations and more than met my business needs. I will return (maybe for leisure next time)!
