Very clean and modern, cosy feel with very comfortable bed. The owners are lovely, very accommodating, made me some delicious scones made with special ingredients to suit my diet. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Paul and Jay were very hospitable and the cream tea on arrival was very welcome. As it has only been converted a year or so ago, it has a modern feel in an old building. It is a perfect retreat for a couple and has an excellent kitchen and good bathroom. All mod cons are provided with excellent wi-fi and good sized TV.

The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The owners were very welcoming, Jay providing warm scones, jam and clotted cream on our arrival. These were delicious and most welcome. Would have no hesitation in recommending to a friend.
