Having just stayed at this B&B, I can honestly say it's one of the best I have stayed at. The house itself is very charming with many original features. It has been very well renovated and maintained. The rooms have great views and the bedding and towels are really soft and comfortable. The owners are really friendly and will go... More

Really comfortable beds in a room which had everything you could need. We had a room at the back which opened out onto the parking space which was really convenient. Martyn and the lady who did the breakfast were friendly and welcoming- the breakfast was delicious and the views from the farmhouse beautiful. Would recommend and revisit !

We arrived very late but were met with an easy friendliness. The room felt like a guest room in your friend's house. Although pretty tight it felt fine and the en-suite was a picture of ergonomics.
