Booked this for Easter weekend and had a really lovely stay. Rooms are well-equipped, owners are very friendly, knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. Everything you need is here, apart from a toothbrush. Breakfast was excellent and very flexible with regards to timings, which made our stay very relaxing. Location is great and pretty quiet. Only downside is that...

We stayed here for one night on 7th April 2017 after spending the day at Monkey World. We were greeted by Carol and shown our room which was beautiful. Carol was friendly and very welcoming. The room itself was big with a view over the pond outside in the gardens which were beautifully landscaped. The bathroom was big and very,...

We stayed at the Whitehouse for 4 nights in March. Beautiful place, spotless in all areas. Whiter than white bedding and towels and the shine on the bath was incredible. Carol and Rob were lovely people, Carol couldn't do enough for you, very friendly and chatty. Breakfast was lovely, fresh fruit, cereal and cooked full English with fresh eggs from...

We arrived at the White House B&B to a warm and accommodating welcome with a lovely cup of tea and wonderful home made cake. The friendly atmosphere created by Carol and Rob made a special weekend even more of a memorable experience, even the chickens made us welcome and were happy to share their eggs with us for breakfast.

Stayed at this lovely B&B for four nights last week. We were made to feel very welcome from the time we stepped through the front yard and left feeling more like friends rather than paying guests. Carol and Rob took great pride in ensuring our stay was as pleasant as possible and nothing was to much trouble. Breakfast was fab...

From the moment my partner and I stepped through the door we were made very welcome and so was our very well behaved dog! From the lovely setting and clean and tidy room to the lovely breakfast, Carol in particular could not do enough for us. We would most definitely recommend this lovely b and b and it's also located...

An experience NOT to be missed. The best equipped dog friendly overnight stop EVER!! From bed cover and bowl with dog biscuits (for the dog) to bottle opener, torch and homemade shorty on the welcome tray (for us). Large comfortable bed and party lights in the wet room - perfect!! After a good night's rest, our trip to the kitchen...
