Had occasion to stay for one night in February. Location was good with 2 pubs and good restaurants a five minute walk away. Ample parking facilities. Room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Colin and Ken were perfect hosts. Colin had us laughing out aloud with his stories. Breakfast cooked by Ken was lovely. There was also an assortment of fruit and cereals if you didn't want a cooked breakfast. We had both. I should imagine in summer that the garden area is a riot of colour. Prices for drinks at the bar was reasonable considering it is a b&b. I would definitely recommend.

Cockwood is a lovely pocket of England, which we are glad we stumbled upon! The Croft Guest House and its owners are a delight! Our room was perfectly, clean with views over the pretty little harbour. Ken cooked a fantastic English Breakfast, and was happy to make any combination that was asked for. Colin was the warmest of hosts, the perfect English Character and made our stay pure pleasure! Until the next time, Thank you!

Many thanks for your very kind review.

It was equally wonderful to have your company here at The Croft and pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Very charming and wonderful easy going couple whom added just the right atmosphere that makes for a happy home.
The other guests that evening of watching the TV Drama said how lovely it was to have a home from home experience and wished me to pass on their regards too.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year to come.
Any time you may be passing please do call in.
Stay well safe & happy always
Best wishes and many thanks once again for your kind review.

Probably one of the best b & b I have ever been to. Ken & Colin are the perfect hosts, you are made to feel part of their family. The rooms are spotless, the breakfast has to be experienced it is that good. All eggs laid by Matilda, their own chicken. What a brilliant stay.
