Great B&B, incredible breakfast, mega quiet even in the morning when the cows were up. Beautiful bedroom, comfy beds and helpful, friendly hosts. Recommend The George round the corner for dinner and a pint... one of the locals even gave us a lift back to the farm. Cannot recommend this place enough, we will be back!

I have stayed at Shave Farm on four separate occasions now and am very happy to highly recommend it. Consistently clean rooms, friendly welcome and great breakfasts. I especially like the family suite, which has a downstairs sitting room and upstairs bedroom and bathroom.

It is such a lovely farm, it made me want to give up my office job and go and work on a farm for a year! We stayed overnight and it was perfect. Really welcoming host Kate who made us a cup of tea as soon as arrived (appreciated the Jammy Dodgers!). We had at our disposal a gorgeous lounge...

We stayed here whilst attending a family wedding nearby. This is a superb b & b sited on a working farm. We were warmly welcomed with a specially brewed pot of tea and biscuits and the standard of accommodation and the quality of the breakfast was exceptional. The only (very minor) downside - and certainly not serious enough to warrant...

Such welcoming hosts nothing was too much trouble, luxurious rooms, delicious breakfast. If the owners give up dairy farming they could be successful interior designers. Loved the quiet location. 15 minute walk into village where we enjoyed a good evening meal.

stayed four nights at Shave Farm last month with a friend in the twin room. We were made to feel welcome from the start, Kate was really friendly, giving advice on places to visit or eat. The room was a generous size and had a well stocked welcome tray, en suite shower room and a separate sink in the room....
