Beautifully restored country B&B in a quiet and very attractive setting. Rooms very clean and comfortable, excellent breakfasts and very pleasant hosts. We paid a bit more for the largest room which had easy chairs and a double outlook. Very comfortable and relaxing stay. Lots of things to see nearby - town of Montgomery is lovely, and several narrow gauge...

So peaceful! Very, very comfortable bed. Lovely blackout curtains, utter silence. Loved it! Only thing we weren't so keen on was the somewhat regimented 'breakfast slot'. Absolutely understand why it's in place having worked in hospitality but, argh, I was SO hungry by 8.45am as I'd been up since 7am! Highly recommended despite a very personal issue! :)

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and for your kind words. Although we do have a 'breakfast slot' system to avoid everyone coming down for breakfast at the the same time we are flexible and I'm sure we could have brought your breakfast forward if you had popped down early. I hope you will...

We stayed for a long weekend and could happily have stayed on! The room was lovely and comfortable with the wonderful Super King size bed and a sofa. Breakfasts were gorgeous, fresh and plentiful.

We stayed 4 nights in the largest room. Everything is of a high standard - furnishings, breakfast, facilities, and all in beautiful, peaceful surroundings. We enjoyed the excellent tennis court and games room and made use of the kitchenette when we didn't want to go out to eat. Definitely one of the best places we've stayed.
