My husband and I stayed in the Camelot suite for two nights. At a loss for words really... A travel back in time, without time travel, is now possible. The attention to detail is so unique and quaint that it does not look staged at all. The rooms are adorned with treasures from the past, but bizarrely the mod cons...

We have just spent two fascinating nights in the Wizards Thatch; first night in the Wizardry and the second night in the Merlin suite. I desperately wanted to provide an accurate and reflective description but I really don't think I can do it justice! Take a look at the photographs and then let your imagination go even further. This place...

Felt you were transported back in time as soon as you entered the suites. Had the pleasure to stay for 5 nights. One in the Camelot and 4 in the wizardry. Enjoyed the extra lounge space in the wizardry as Ian kindly allowed my 3 little dogs to join us. Little touches such as fresh flowers, fresh milk biscuits and...

Quirky, unexpected and extremely comfortable stay in the Wizardry. Stayed for one night in The Wizard's Thatch and would definitely stay again. The Wizard's Thatch is in a good location, within walking distance of the high street and a selection of restaurants.

My husband and I spent our first wedding anniversary here and the whole experience was fabulous. Ian and his family have done an amazing job restoring this magical old building and you actually imagine a wizard at work in its wonky old rooms. The Merlin suite is perfect for a romantic weekend and the little extras that are provided give...

Just spent a couple of nights in The Wizardry and it was fabulous. We were made to feel very welcome by Ian Lambert and if you like quirky with 5 star luxury then this is the place for you. With the windows covered in vines it gives the suite a warm, cosy and romantic feel which stays with you throughout...

We spent our wedding anniversary night here. It really is a magical place. The proprietor was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the area as his family have lived there for many decades. The Wizardry truly is full of artifacts that could keep you amused and interested for far longer than we had to spare. There are some lovely walks...
