Little Gem
Just returned from a lovely 5 night break at The Cavendish.Our hosts Jo and Robert were so friendly and welcoming. Our room was really clean, comfortable and spacious, and with very clear guidelines on keeping safe at this present time, with staggered breakfast times and hand sanitiser points. You can tell they love what they do and go out of their way to keep guests happy.Thankyou Jo and Rob for your hospitality and not forgetting the yummy breakfasts :)

A home from home and relaxing stay.
What a wonderful stay we had, from checking in with us before we arrived to check out, Jo and Rob could not have done anything else for us. Everything we needed was available either in the room or by contacting Jo and Rob who delivered items to our door. A truly fantastic stay and without a doubt we’ll be back again

We really enjoyed our stay. Social distancing not a problem, everywhere was really clean, hosts very friendly. The family room was liggt, airy and very spacious. Breakfast was amazing and plentiful woth wide range of options, child friendly, location excellent. We couldn't fault anything. Our only hiccup on arrival was finding out they wouldn't normally provide towles for children. They soon responded and provided towle for our 2 but we didnt see it anywhere that thats not normally the case, had we known we would of taken our own. But absolutely value for money and a great place to stay
