Just got back from a few days stay at the Hi Tor and thought I’d add a review as the place was great. Originally booked with Late Rooms but due to a couple of requests I had made whilst booking Sue (the owner) rang me up to confirm – it turns out that one of the rooms I had booked...

What a superb b&b. From the minute you walk through the door Sue & Gary take good care of you. Spotlessly clean, brilliant breakfast & good location. Our room was beautifully decorated and had everything you needed including wine glasses and a corkscrew - perfect! Can't wait to return.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a lovely time. We arrived on a Friday night and as other reviews have said, parking isn't the easiest. However, the owners are so good at giving information on where you can/can't park, they also give you a permit so that you can park without paying. We stayed in room 2 which...
