The surroundings and views are incredibly beautiful, as is the manor house, although the patio where we had our lunch lacked that "warm" atmosphere. Having said that, the quality of food made up for this. A nice touch is that half portions are available, roughly at half price. The prawn curry was extremely tasty, as was the spicy beef stew,...

It is basically an historic farmhouse and we had the run of the place for the four nights we stayed. Decanters of port and sherry were placed in the huge sitting room and we could sample as much...

You would have noticed a previous post from me regarding shocking service we received at Paulina’s, Rickety Bridge.

Small B& B with lots of character. Very friendly, helpful staff and comfortable, clean room the only thing lacking was a shower. Short drive from the town with lovely outlook. Walking distance from Rickety Bridge vineyard.
