My wife and I have just spent the night in Richard and Sandra's lovely B&B and we had a truly wonderful time. Birdsong Cottage is located just off the A1 so it was very easy to get to, which in this weather was important. On our arrival we were met by Richard who showed us to the parking area on... More

Having read so many excellent reviews we weren't disappointed. Sandra and Richard are excellent hosts and they attended to every detail, from Buck's Fizz in the fridge to sweets in a small jar, small bottles of milk, hairdryer and straighteners and the list goes on. The bed was incredibly comfortable, the shower room bright and and modern and then hot... More

From the private outdoor hot tub to breakfast butties in bed, complimentary chocolates to bathrobes and slippers, remote control mood lighting to smart TV, these are the touches that set the Haven room apart from other rooms in other B&Bs. The welcome was warm and the facilities faultless. It might not be cheap but it was the cheapest we found,... More

Myself and my husband stayed for two nights in the 'Haven' room. As soon as we arrived we were greeted warmly, Richard even stood outside in the rain to welcome us as we had a little difficulty finding the cottage. Sandra showed us to our room and was really lovely, recommending places to eat/visit. The room was amazing! Immaculate and... More
