We stayed in 4 different B&B’s in England, and found Greenview House to be the most welcoming of them all. The host, Rod, was extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating, as was his canine companion, Buddy. The room was roomy, homey, and well-appointed, and the breakfasts were exactly to order. The guest house is very convenient to shopping, restaurants, transportation, and... More

(Nowadays you get so many very hotel-like places with 6 bedrooms and everything is clinical and unpersonal). But Greenview is perfect! Very small room, but perfect... More

Had a really very nice two night stay here. The proprietor is incredibly welcoming and hospital. He'll do whatever he can to make your stay more pleasant. The room was modern and comfortable. The location is excellent. Highly recommended.

Rod and his four-legged friend, Buddy, were wonderful hosts for our group of 4 people and one West Highland White Terrier named Jasmine. Greenview House has a great location with nearby walking areas for our dog and close to town for shopping or dining. Rod made us feel right at home and was very helpful during our 2-night stay.
