Breaky: fresh squeezed Oj , fresh cut fruit bowl, yoghurt & cereals, and then the full English breakfast: eggs any way wanted, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, toast. Best of all,...

We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Jonathan and Herman cannot do enough for you, including going out to fetch us pizza on our first night, when we were all exhausted from our grueling journey. Monty, the gentle dog, is also pretty cool. The rooms and gardens are lovely and the house is obviously located in an upmarket area....
