A delightful bed-and-breakfast with everything you could want. Very traditional old style with even the stable doors! With superb breakfast's fit for a king. Superbly placed within the village for exploring the nearby delights of this quaint English countryside

Small B&B on the square in Shere - quiet, lovely well equipped room with nice extras, great breakfast with local sausages and bacon mmm, great location for walking. Food available at several local pubs we went to The White Horse and it was excellent with great service. Also tearooms, icecreams and village stores nearby. Local villages all fun to visit.
