Actually better than home because you get a fabulous locally sourced full English breakfast and you don't have to do the washing up. Willow Cottage is a proper farm B&B with horses grazing next door and hens laying your breakfast eggs at the end of the drive. Busy cottagey bedrooms have all the amenities you could want and Anne is...

She had had a cancellation so although we had booked a family room she made two rooms available at no extra cost. Very well appointed rooms with lots of character. Comfy bed, feather...

It is my first time for a b & b experience and it was an amazing 4 nights stay. The location is very close to nature with lovely views. The breakfast is great with homemade jams, yoghurt in a full English breakfast. The hostess is very hospitable.

Our room had a separate bathroom with a free standing bath, separate shower cubicle and plenty of clean towels. The other two rooms from which we could had...

A family funeral brought the family to Longton. It was a quiet location and a very comfortable B & B. An excellent breakfast helped the family to face the day. The hostess provided useful information on where to eat and was very accommodating. Thank You.

I stayed here recently (May 2016) and the owner made me feel very welcome. My room was exceptional with a wonderful cosy bed. Breakfast was sooooo good and her homemade blackcurrant jam was delicious. So peaceful and quiet. Thank you for a lovely stay. See you again soon.
