At the price point I was not sure what I would get, but was pleasantly surpised. Nice room, not en suite but I knew this at the time of booking and loo was right outside my door. Great breakfast and very friendly owners.

The breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked with nice ingredients, a...

Please be aware that the prices quoted are massively overstated. Please contact Jane and Mary direct for current prices. 01947 606361. They have tried every which way to amend this but are unable to do so.

We had a 1 night stay in this guesthouse. Room 5 was lovely and we found it to be spacious, clean and comfortable. We loved the decor and the little homely touches, just small things like slippers and cotton buds in the bathroom - they are thoughtful and were appreciated. It's probably one of the nicest places we've stayed in...

Room was large and warm and the bed very comfortable. Very clean and the shower ensuite had plenty of hot water - there is a bathroom on the landing...
