We stayed for a week at The Coach House, a self-catering cottage adjacent to Abbey House. From the moment we opened the gate to this property and drove up the driveway, we were treated to a taste of English country living, at a place of quality and character, beauty and charm. Our cozy cottage had all the amenities we needed, and yet was rustic enough to relax in. Sue is warm and friendly, always offering good ideas for days out or places to eat, and would even leave kindling at our doorstep so that when we returned from our walking days, we could enjoy a fire in the evening. We treated ourselves to 2 of Sue's delectable breakfasts at Abbey House, and even came back with fresh sandwiches to enjoy lunch at the table by the pond just outside our door and to watch the 2 black swans and 3 cygnets, peacocks, and guinea hens. Much more than a place to spend the night, this quiet, peaceful setting envelops the traveler in rural England with every view and every breath.

Sue, and Abbey House, is incredible! I stayed with my bridal party before my wedding and I can honestly say it was the perfect start to our celebrations. Abbey House is stunning and was the perfect place for our photos. The rooms are gorgeous, the house is stunning and the peacocks are great fun and the whole feel of the place makes you feel like you're somewhere very special!! On the morning of our big day, Sue was helpful, discreet and an absolute joy to share our special time with. The coach house is perfectly equipped to feel like you're in a bubble away from everyone else, and her little touches were just so kind. Stay with Sue!!

Room Tip: The coach house is stunning - stay!!

Abbey House in March 2014 was a picture postcard as you approach the house from the gravel drive; daffodils in bloom with accompanying primroses. The same joy was found in the house. The owner, who lives on site, was welcoming to the extreme and wonderfully informative and helpful. Her breakfasts were delicious and her hospitality first class. The house oozed comfort and homliness and nothing was too much trouble for Sue. We stayed in the twin room which was warm and spacious with a bathroom across the landing. The beds were comfortable and the sheets freshly ironed, just like a smart hotel. However, everything was very personal and familiar. This is a gem of a b and b and even our bird phobia was accommodated by Sue who made sure the chickens and peacocks were out of sight when we needed to get to and from our car! Now that is what I call first class service! We'll be back Sue!

A beautiful old house, still lived in by the family. We were warmly welcomed by our hostess and the lovely black cat, and offered tea, cake, and a wood fire in the sitting room. Our twin bedroom was comfortable, with a bathroom across the landing, and a view of the garden and fields in the morning. The decor is very English - practicality over beauty - but the place feels like a real home.

I stayed at Abbey House whilst visiting friends nearby. The drive up the the house was impressive and I was warmly greeted by the owner Sue.
A relaxing walk around the grounds found peacocks, a lake with black swans and even a pool, but January meant no chance of a dip!
A comfortable double room with amenities and an en suite was topped off with a hearty breakfast.
All in all, very good indeed and thoroughly recommended.
