We really enjoyed our two nights here in March and were made very welcome. Yummy home made scones with fresh strawberries and jam on arrival, which went down a treat! Our room was very comfortable, with tea/coffee making facilities. All the little extras made such a difference and we loved the homemade shortbread! I don't normally sleep well when we're...

This was our second visit to Colin and Sandra's as we'd loved this little B&B so much the first time we'd used it. We were not disappointed. We received the same warm welcome and immediately felt at home. Sandra and Colin have a lovely manner; nothing feels awkward or forced and nothing is too much trouble. We feel so comfortable...

This is the first time we have stayed at the Willance house B and B and we were very impressed! V Rey clean and comfortable with loads of little touches that put this establishment ahead of others. Fresh milk on request and shortbread for starters! However the key components of any stay at a B and B are a comfortable...

Like others, we'd seen great reviews for this place so booked without shopping around (very unlike us); and we're so glad we did. It was peaceful, with free street parking, excellent food, and lovely extras (like fresh milk). Colin and Sandra really go the extra mile for their guests. Thank you

MARCH 2017 - Looked at the reviews for this guest house which were all good, so decided to book for two nights and glad we did. From the moment we arrived to leaving, Colin & Sandra were the perfect hosts. Breakfast was wonderful with plenty of choice. Would not hesitate to return or recommend to our friends and family

We just love coming to Willance House, and having Colin & Sandra take such good care of us. Everything is consistently first class, from the friendly welcome to the house and room which are spotless, the same delicious food - this time the greeting pot of tea was with home made scones - excellent. The bed is so comfortable, the...

This had such good reviews that a friend and I visiting the area decided to try it. It is a truly lovely place, with excellent service by the owners and very handy for Richmond center and the castle. The rooms are characterful as the building date back to the 16c! History abounds including the story of Mr Willance. Bedrooms very...

Thank you for your lovely comments and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found your breakfast superb. We discovered that the main A1 road had been closed overnight on the night of your stay and that although it is 4 miles or so way some traffic had been diverted through the town. We are very pleased that...

After a freindly welcome we were shown our room, No3, by Sandra. It is at the back of the house and, if the mist hadn't been in the way, we could have seen the castle (just)! The room is spacious, very clean and decorated nicely. It has a feature iron fireplace. The bay window had a window seat. The king...
