Just spent a great weekend at the Greenwood. Penny our host made us very welcome.The room was delightful, very clean, well furnished, tea making, free internet, bathroom toiletries. The breakfast was excellent, I would have no hesitation in recommending the Greenwood.

Stopped here for a night last week. Lovely clean quiet comfortable accommodation. Penny is a gracious host. Breakfast was delicious. A great place to stay. We didn't have our dogs with us but we could see that it was a dog friendly place.

Room Tip: Probably try for room at back of house if possible as road noise may be a problem.

Thank you for your kind comments.
The road noise is not too bad as the guest house is set well back from the road, however when windows are open in the summer months it is more noticeable. There is only one room overlooking the back of the house.

Well located for walks to local pubs, set in own grounds so well back from any traffic noise. Very well appointed room, all spotlessly clean, complimentary biscuits, tea, coffee, toiletries, free Wi-Fi is another nice touch nowadays.
I did not make full use of the facilities ref food, but notice other reviewers are all very positive, so, all in all, deserving of anyone's recommendation

Booked the Greenwood on Bookings.com never sure quite what your going to get as we didn't know the area, Penny was a fantastic host, had some trouble with getting internet when we arrived, I think it was my fault more than theirs,Ian sorted me out eventually. House set back from the road so no road noise, Penny makes a fantastic breakfast, sadly we missed out on the renowned cream teas, next time, Penny works VERY hard to make this happen couldn't do enough for us including loads of washing and suggesting great places to eat locally. Go and stay here.

We arrived at 16.45 for afternoon tea (clotted cream of course). Penny would have normally been closed by then, but, because she had not taken in the boards from outside, she set about making the most beautiful afternoon tea. Hot scones, choice of jams and clotted cream.
We had, unfortunately, already booked accommodation elsewhere, but we ended up coming back for breakfast, which Penny made, after her resident guests had left. Breakfast too was superb!
We we made to feel part of the family, such a breath of fresh air. Lovely hospitality, lovely people, lovely place. Thank you.

I highly recommend this beautiful gem of a hotel. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Spacious grounds and rooms. Delicious breakfast with lots of choice. Good shower too. Beauty treatments also available with advance booking.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 1 overlooking the garden. Very spacious and quiet.

Lovely old house and gardens. You can have afternoon tea but we were too late to try this. Very welcoming hostess. Clean, comfortable and good breakfast. Great pubs with good food in walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay. Would certainly stay again.
