Spacious room and not over overcrowded with beds. Very generous re kitchen condiments and herbs picked from the garden for own use. Grounds are well manicured with plenty of nooks and crannies for resting up and peace and quiet. Clean as a whistle! Friendly environment.

Room Tip: All rooms equally good!

Quite simply the rare combo of relaxed but onto it. They genuinely care about sorting your trip out with REAL worthwhile things to do in the local area. Being on the move full time with work, it's a little tucked up pocket of solace I really look forward to every time, and leave refreshed, most times! Thanks guys!

There's a warm, rustic feel to jugglers rest which makes it a delightful wonderland to stay in.
