Here are some comments from people who have stayed with us.

"Stayed for a weekend with my girlfriend and we had lovely time. The hospitality was excellent and the room beautiful, with a marvellous view to the valley and a very nice en-suite shower. The overall standard is much higher than you get used to in a B&B. I would say this was the best B&B I have ever visited in the UK. We would definitely stay again."

Tamas & Lorraine

"I came away with a friend of mine to Bath for a few days and didn't expect to stay in such an absolutely gorgeous B&B. I have had a wonderful stay. Thank you for your warm welcome."


"We're so happy to have chanced upon this place! It's beautiful, inside and out, and the hospitality made us feel welcome and at home. Thank you!"


"Many thanks for your hospitality... Love the house and what a fabulous setting!"
