We drove down from the Cotswolds for a family party and James ( Ash Cars ) my partners son recommended it to us. Our room was far better than we expected and being right at the back it was really quiet. That said, I think all the rooms are at the back. Our host was very hospitable and couldn't be... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding and found the location ideal for Howletts zoo which was a bonus. We had room 5 which was lovely and spacious with a shower over the bath another bonus. The breakfast was varied and plentiful. The hosts Gerry and Denise were both very friendly and nothing was to much trouble for... More

We chose this little B&B as the place to stay for a wedding that weekend. The reviews looked great and as did the owners.

We stayed in this B&B on BH weekend Saturday night. Room was lovely and clean with all the facilities you need and the breakfast and service was outstanding. I totally recommend this beautiful characteristic B&B. There is a pub close by if you wanted to eat and have a drink.
