Warm welcome, very friendly and helpful hosts Phil and Linda. Location very good. Calm and peaceful area with swimming pool and garden. Beautiful decor in spacious room and spotless bathroom. We were in Room 7 overlooking the river with balcony. Amazing breakfast. We have no hesitation in recommending this delightful and beautifully decorated guest house.

Lovely room and so much information and so many suggestions from Phil on trips and local restaurants. Excellent breakfast with information on the provenance of the majority of the fayre on offer. Gumtree offers a small pool with loungers and a bar service as well.

Phil and Linda's friendliness, helpfulness and service are outstanding. The breakfast with self baked bread, and foods from the area is brilliant, not to forget the cooked option. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfy.
