What more can I say that hasn't already been said about this absolute stunner of a B&B? There aren't enought superlatives to describe the wonderful, kind, thoughtful, considerate hosts that are Wendy and David, not to mention their lovely staff.
Wendy very kindly booked us into two separate restaurants on consecutive nights and very kindly dropped us off at the first one - the Italian previously mentioned by other reviewers - as it was in town. What service! The restaurant is also highly recommended as it too has very high levels of service, and very agreeable staff. Wendy also indulged us in light and amusing conversation at breakfast, which was much appreciated as we were the only guests over the weekend in question, probably due to its proximity to xmas (i.e. the weekend before).
We will definitely be returning in the not too distant future, hopefully to see the garden in all of its glory.Thanks you Wendy & David :-)
