We saw this on trip advisor and contacted Heather via e mail. We were informed they had moved to The Old Band Hall, still in the village. We were given good instructions how to find their new residence, a converted old band hall, hence the name. The renovation and extension have all been done extremely well, the rooms are spacious,...

Heather and Peter welcomed us with a cup of tea and a home-made muffing (with home-made jam, yum). They have recently completely refurbished the former chapel, which now forms the accommodation, in a manner which is a mix of modern and tasteful whilst staying true to the historic style of the old chapel. The rooms are very tastefully refurbished, spotlessly... More

Thank you to you both for a lovely stay last Saturday evening whilst we attended a family party in the village. The room (and water bed!) was very comfortable and breakfast was simply delicious. With many thanks Lucy and James

Comfort and attention to detail made this B+B one night stay something really special. All credit to Heather and Peter for their relaxed approach yet obvious commitment to the care of their guests. The beds are really comfortable and the breakfast freshly cooked + locally sourced.
