“Good accomodation - shame about the reception”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2009

This is a truly lovely b and b, pretty and comfortable, it's flaw was summed up by the reception received from the rather abrupt manner of the owner (we didn't meet the other host). We were reprimanded for not informing re eta. we believe we did this in an email and had rung on our way - furthermore, the £50 deposit confirmed we were coming! Whatever th reality it was 't the reception we'd expected after several hours' driving. She then checked we HAD brought our slippers - to lessen noise. Decision was needed within minutes of arrival for tea or coffee for bfast. Then told to come in quietly - her manner made us dare to do no other! Breakfast was nicely cooked but without any reference to what we wanted - juice poured and this wasted by 2 of our party. On request for only a few items was met with raised eyebrows.
Marge rather than butter, no bicuits with tea tray in room, unfamiliar brands of tea and coffee and no fresh milk disappointed. However the main reason that we would not return was the intermittent Fawltyesque manner of our hostess. Sad really as the accomodation was lovely.i

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2009

After finding hotel accommodation fully booked in the area we stayed at Lavender Cottage for two nights with Shirley and David who could not have made us feel more welcome. They went out of their way to tell us about various local attractions, things to do and places to eat.
The accommodation was excellent as was the breakfast we had each morning and nothing was too much trouble. We wouldn't hesitate to return to Laveneder cottage and have already passed on the contact details to our friends.

It's the second year we have stayed at Lavender Cottage and we'll definitely be back again next year. Shirley runs a very clean and cosy B&B where you want for nothing. Lavender Cottage is immaculately clean, very well furnished and with a cracking good breakfast that sets you up for the day. It's also nice and relaxed when you get back in after a day sight-seeing with not only tea and coffee in your room but free access to make your own in the kitchen too. The rooms are very well appointed and very confortable. What else can I say? In the words of Arnold Schwarzeneggar..... "I'll be back" :-)

we stayed 4 nights here, originally booked 3. this is such a lovely place, the owners were superb, very genuine people. breakfast was fab. nothing was any trouble to these people.
This is the best B & B we have stayed in. rooms immaculate and most important was the cleaniness. Very comfortable place to stay in.
We highly recommend this bed & breakfast, and yes we really are going back in March 2009.
