So comfortable, incredibly friendly and fantastic breakfasts - particularly the great omelette Andy cooked for me, and their lovely homemade bread!! Attention to detail is their speciality, with well presented rooms including chilled fresh milk to make your own brew in the room should you wish. We also enjoyed... More

A beautiful home with friendly hosts, a delicious breakfast with home baked bread,what's not to like? Lots of attention to small details such as fresh milk in the room along with home made biscuits. We were attending a wedding and the location was perfect.

From the moment Andy met us as we parked our car, we knew this would be an exceptional stay. Our twin room had every comfort - fresh milk and cookies, modern bathroom with large shower, and luxurious furnishings. The freshly made omelettes at breakfast, along with homemade bread and jams made a perfect beginning to our day.

We spent the first two nights in a little annex called "the barn". This room has its own entrance and was very private and quiet. This suited us as we returned to our room at midnight and we didn't disturb the other guests. This room has a big comfy double bed and plenty of space. On our second visit we... More

Absolutely amazing. Quality fresh ingredients, everything homemade - even the jam and beautifully presented. Best afternoon tea I've ever had and I've been to The Ritz! Just off the A6, well worth a visit.

We started with a "shot" of her home-made soup which was a taster of what was to come. The sandwiches were made with... More

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I've thanked the chef in question for sending you!
