It is hard to know where to begin – part of me doesn’t want to let the rest of the world know about this wonderful retreat and the other part wants to give Jan and Neil all the business they deserve!
Firstly, if you are looking for nightlife, pubs, restaurants and excellent internet access, then this is not the place for you. If you don’t like animals or if you find the smells of the countryside off-putting, then go elsewhere. If, on the other hand, you love peace and quiet, relish walks where you will see no other people for miles, want to look at breathtaking views and enjoy delicious, home-cooked food, then get yourself to Rushop Hall post-haste!
What Jan and Neil have created is a little piece of paradise and, if you read the few negative reviews as anything other than the comments of ‘townies who have missed the point’ then more fool you! It would be best if you take a car, as there is literally nothing within walking distance, but, that said, Neil is very accommodating and will give you a lift if you organise it with him. Penny’s Cars (local taxi service) were brilliant and I would also highly recommend them.
The B &B part I cannot fault – and I am quite fussy! I cannot comment on the holiday cottages as these were not used, but they look delightful. The rooms are comfortable, well-appointed and warm; the bathroom was always clean and fresh towels were provided each day. There were plenty of different teas/coffees to choose from and there were biscuits provided every day. If you want, packed lunches are also provided. The view from the twin room was breathtaking – hills in the distance and alpacas just outside the window – you couldn’t have asked for more. Ron, the yard cat made my week! There is also a guest lounge which also has amazing views from the windows. Every day when we returned, Neil kindly came up with some fresh milk in a jug.
Now to the best part – the food! Jan is the most modest and amazing cook. Don’t expect the full range of restaurant options – this is a B & B who will provide meals if you pre-arrange them – there is a set number of choices, but Jan will quietly and politely negotiate what and when she will provide. Remember, this is a remote farmhouse and she needs to go and buy in advance! We ate extremely well, with delights such as salmon in parma ham, smoked haddock risotto (which was amazing!) and a wonderful rhubarb crumble. The breakfasts were given the same care and consideration as the evening meals and included gorgeous Greek yoghurt with vanilla, fresh fruit and the usual cooked items, but not a hint of grease and sogginess. Homemade bread, marmalade and jam and proper butter completed the treats. This is indeed a gem of a B & B. Thank you Neil and Jan for your kind hospitality.

Stayed here for two nights in the pepper pot cottage.

When we arrived there was a slight mix up but it was sorted very quickly and was no trouble to us at all. The people who run that place are very kind and welcoming. They really make your stay a lot brighter and it definitely made it for me.

The cottage was absolutely wonderful. It was compact but had everything in it to be cosy and a great stay. The log burner was fantastic especially as the rain fell on an evening, breakfast was included in our stay and was absolutely delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would most certainly be booking again to stay for a few days in the future. Thanks for having us.

Would rate 10/10

What a lovely Hotel. Setting was superb and the food was excellent. Rooms were lovely and had all the facilities you would want. Mattress was a little too firm for me as I have a bad back. Very friendly and helpful couple. Good equestrian facilities but would have been good to have a sheltered area for tacking up if rained. Also felt it was a very expensive rate for grazing at £12 a night. Even so would go again and would recommend to others as a great base for a riding holiday.

A part 15th century and Georgian small country mansion set in idyllic location with views over country side. You feel your are a week end guest.

It was a stormy day when we arrived and were able to use our own atmospheric sitting room. We didn’t have to sit on our room on our bed all evening and night. Our rooms were very comfortable and clean.

The breakfast was excellent equal to any 4 star hotel we have stayed. The dinner was equal to any very good restaurant. As we stayed 2 nights we were able to discuss our dinner on the second night.
