The proprietors were very friendly and welcoming on arrival and nothing was too much trouble there was plenty of everything for breakfast cereals fruits and full English all really nice. The proprietors were also very truthful when they said my single room was cosy !! It was indeed very very tiny and a little bit claustrophobic but they really did... More

So glad you enjoyed your stay - the room is cozy but does have full facilities such as en suite, freeview T.V. and tea/coffee making facilities and it does meet the strict criteria laid down by Visit England when awarding us their pretigious 3 star award. More

Greeted by friendly owner who couldn't do enough for us. Quiet B&B in a good location. No stag or hen parties allowed which was one of the reasons we chose to stay there with our two grand daughters. Stayed in the family room which was small but very clean and ideal for a weekend break. Lovely full English breakfast too,... More

I've just enjoyed a decent night at The Osprey. My room was only small but spotlessly clean including the en-suite. Breakfast was lovely and surprisingly large and the couple running the guest house were friendly and pleasant. Well done.
