"Loved it - gorgeous old house with such lovely owners and hosts."
We stayed for one night. We stayed in the ground floor pine room which was beautifully furnished with a fabulous and comfortable four poster bed. The ensuite shower room was perfectly functional and plenty of room and nice large shower. Breakfast was delightful, we both opted for the English Breakfast - not a spot of grease in sight, not overloaded, perfect portion size to keep one well going for a late lunch! Read less
