Beautifully decorated & well equipped rooms in a quiet village well located for touring the area. We stayed 3 nights (wedding at River Cottage HQ) & loved it. The breakfast specials were particularly good- cheese & herb cornbread, eggs benedict, smoked cheese rarebit - and Libby remembered my preference for green tea every morning (& put extra tea bags in...

We stayed here for three nights in June and can only echo the well deserved excellent reviews from other guests. The house, rooms, breakfast and service are wonderful - all organised by Simon and Libby who are lovely hosts. Faultless. We will be back - for a third visit.

Everything is so well thought out, there are wonderful touches in the bedroom like lovely local drinks & home made short bread. Beautiful products in the bathroom, lovely towels. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated, it's all very tastefully done. The breakfast was...

We spent three nights here last week and from the minute we arrived the hospitality was exceptional. It was really lovely that we were met on arrival (it may seem a small thing but we have stayed in places where you wonder which door to use, or even if there's anyone in!). Then we were bowled over by the room...

I realised that our last review from a few months ago was not put in, but wanted to say, yet again, your b and b is faultless and we would always stay here in preference to anywhere else in the area, whatever the star rating. At some point we would like to stay for a good few days to properly...

We've stayed here on two occassions, would have been three had they not been so popular! Faultless on all levels. The breakfast is fantastic, we love the take-home choccies.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for one night and honestly, it was fantastic. The room was really clean, well thought out and the bed was especially comfortable.
