My husband and I stayed here for one night and it was lovely. The hosts were welcoming and chatty, our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and the house itself was full of English charm and character. We were served tea and home made fruit cake when we arrived, which was delicious! Our cooked breakfast in the morning was pretty... More

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,... More

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... More
