Highly recommended stay at this lovely B&B, comfortable beds, rooms spotless and clean bathroom adjoining. Complimentary wine with tea and coffee making facilities. Top quality breakfast with a selection cereals, toast and full English. Nice friendly owners Colin and Wendy who own the B&B. Would definitely go back again and recommend to other people.

We spent a very pleasant night at the old forge. The room was clean and had everything you would expect, breakfast was enjoyable. The hosts were attentive but not intrusive .
