We were only able to stay at the Library House for one night, for a short Easter break. However, Sarah and Tim, our hosts, made us feel immediately welcomed and we will definitely recommend their beautiful home to friends and family. Fabulous location too.

Stayed for one night at the Library House. The hosts, Sarah and Tim, could not have been more charming and helpful. The rooms were elegant, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location was perfect - right in the middle of the town overlooking the Gorge. And to top it off the breakfast was delicious. Would highly recommend.

I have to agree with the other reviews. Spotlessly clean, lovely food, welcoming hosts who did not mind us poking about in their garden. We were in the Chaucer room which opens out onto the garden. The room is small but we knew this when booking. You can hear the nearby church clock chiming out the hours day and night,...

Peaceful slice of heaven. Immaculately clean. Beautifully decorated. The perfect middle of our vacation treat. Wish I could live here. It really was like visiting a favorite family member's home. Located right by the iron bridge

We found the Library House on Trip Advisor and couldn't have been happier. We were welcomed with tea and coffee in the garden complete with slices of fruit cake, admittedly the weather was gorgeous but what a fabulous gesture all the same. We stayed in the Eliot room which overlooked a courtyard type area and the gorge just across the...
