The guest's lounge is even better than shown in the photo - really well appointed and restful. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated and the en-suite facilities are modern and...

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The attention to detail with the food, service and room facilities was way beyond our expectations. We look forward to staying with June and Carl again very soon.

All together great value and a great experience. Carl & June did all they could to please & were the perfect hosts. The location is ideal, we did not need to use the car all the time we were there. We definitely recommend.

Stopped for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Kingsholm. What better way to start the day than to have a top breakfast before heading out to for the day. Carl and June are the perfect hosts and clearly pride themselves on offering a flawless ' home from home' for all their visitors.....and what's more, it's quiet, yet...
