Very nice old building with hospitable owners. Nice breakfasts, of almost limitless choices. I had trepidation's about the bed, which would normally have been too hard for me, but surprisingly I found it OK.

It was a really lovely experience. We were so well looked after and attention to detail in everything. I hope to be able to stay there next year for Silverstone weekend. Parking was easy, just across the road. Our room was at the back with a view of the lovely garden, quiet!

I stayed this week on business and this place was just the ticket to wind down and relax after a hard day. Karen and Peter are lovely hosts, they've made this place so friendly. You almost feel like a member of the family. The place is super maintained, clean and exceptionally furnished. I stayed for breakfast, which was also exceptional....

Can only repeat what you have already seen from other guests comments, this is a cut above the rest and Peter & Karen go the extra mile to make everything perfect for your stay with them. Like home from home! Will go back the next chance we get.
