Reviewed 3 days ago

Excellent, large room with en-suite shower & bath, and seating area perfect for working or watching TV. Small fridge, tea & coffee making facilities and beautiful china cups & saucers. The rooms feel elegant & very comfortable.
Spotlessly clean throughout.
Nothing too much trouble for hosts Ceri & Carol e.g. when they were fully booked, they rearranged the cars on their drive to ensure that I could leave early in the morning at the weekend.
Wide range of mouth-watering options for a delicious breakfast. All served in their lovely conservatory overlooking the beautiful garden.
A thoroughly individual & unique B&B. My second visit and I will stay again!!
