Very Good8.0
We highly recommend this place. It's a funky little b&b with the most gracious hosts you can imagine. Wouldn't have missed it for the world.

Lovely, convenient inn.
Lovely village inn in nice, conveniently located town. Hosts were personable & welcoming, & enjoyed discussing local history. They gave us discount coupons for local attractions, unsolicited. Choice of restaurants nearby. Excellent, homemade English breakfasts, with eggs from the chickens in the back yard. A homey, enjoyable stay.

A joyous stay
Superb small hotel run by a couple who really know how to make the stay very good. Nice clean en suite room, with lots of touches like a small torch to see you to the WC in the night. Shuttered windows make the room dark and cuts down on the noise, Breakfast is very good with all the produce bought locally. If you need to stay in the area look no further.

The stay here could not have been better. The owners attention to detail was 110%. How many places provide ear plugs in case one of you snores? This place is on my No1 list of places to stay. To misquote Arnie "we'll be back"
