I couldn't agree more with all the positive reviews already given. Sheriff Lodge is a lovely place to stay and Kate and Alan even lovelier hosts. Thank you for making our visit so comfortable and welcoming.

Great B&B, with lovely modern bedrooms and fantastic breakfasts. I have coeliac disease and nothing was too much trouble. My wife says Alan's home made bread is the best. A great couple of people with a great home they share readily. We will certainly be visiting again

The house is lovely and the guest parlour is homely with complimentary juices (and sherry). Breakfast was the best part of our stay, so much to choose and the full English is amazing. Alan...

Beautiful house, comfortable rooms, lovely breakfast, welcoming hosts - what more could you ask. Our 10 year old granddaughter said it was the best breakfast she had ever had (pancakes) and absolutely loved the themed rooms with knitted animals and pictures (mice in our room and squirrels in theirs). Huge comfortable beds, spotlessly clean throughout and attention to detail was...

We had a fantastic stay here. Kate and Alan are the best hosts and made us so welcome. On arrival we sat in the lovely garden and Alan brought us complimentary tea and homemade cake. Breakfast wonderful with Alan's homemade bread and marmalade 😀 Lovely rooms too and comfortable beds. THIS is how a B&B should be

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Sheriff Lodge where both Kate & Alan made us feel very welcome. We had a lovely room called Mousehole on the 1st floor. This is a large room with 3 high windows and was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was superb with delicious fresh fruit, a breakfast cooked using local ingredients...
