Countryside comfort - super homemade food!
We had a warm welcome from Abby and her husband, bearing delicious, homemade rhubarb and ginger sponge with great blobs of clotted cream and a large pot of tea. Our garden annexe room was cosy, comfortable and clean, with a comfy super-king size bed. with a large en suite bathroom with underfloor heating, which was lovely and warm, on a wet and windy arrival day. We over-looked a rambling and pretty garden with countryside views and hens wandering around freely. Which I loved as they were such characters, along with Valentino, the aptly named cockerel, who I believe, was moving to pastures new, in a day or so! Fabulous breakfasts, lots of lovely choices and all fresh and very tasty. We stayed for 3 nights and on one very wet afternoon, sat in the lounge, again with tea, coffee and superb homemade scones with plum jam, butter and blobs of that gorgeous cream by a welcome log burner. There was no WiFi or TV in the annexe, but we had downloaded a few different current series and watched them sitting on the bed, during the evening with a glass of wine. We really enjoyed our stay, as did our lovely Lab-retriever, Ollie, who is well trained and loved the warmth of the underfloor heating under his dog-bed. We loved our stay, and would thank our hosts, for a well thought out and friendly time. Good luck to you both and perhaps we’ll see you again, Peter and Heather xx

Absolutely perfect B&B. Rooms were fantastic and attention to detail is second to none. Breakfast was absolutely sublime, Abby offered cooked breakfast and wholesome alternatives and were both brilliant. One of the best B&Bs I have visited and definitely the best value for money.

A welcome slice of country life
What a lovely place - so very welcoming. We had a party to attend in the local area and stumbled across this property when searching for a place to stay. So happy we did - room is very clean and comfortable and you also have use of a gorgeous sitting room with fireplace. Hearty and plentiful breakfast, and service was very welcoming throughout. Abby is a polite and warm host and we were both extremely happy throughout our brief stay. Thanks for a great trip. We will be back!
