We had a lovely stay at Carpenters. It is ideally located and Ray and Janet are very friendly and welcoming. The place is clean and we had everything we needed for our stay. We will stay there again next time we are in the area.

Carpenters is ideal for Brize Norton and very flexible with frequent flight changes. Always good value, clean, good breakfast and off road parking. What else do you need? I can't think of anything else and always recommend to friends in the Falklands.

My husband and I recently attended a wedding at Caswel House which was a 5 minute drive away from The Carpenters, Ray and Janet made us feel very welcome. Our room was very clean and a very comfortable bed. The full English breakfast was amazing,. Would highly recommend this b&b and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We came to visit our cousin in the area and stayed in this lovely place for two nights. We stayed in a twin room, the mattresses were so comfortable. Ray was a warm and welcoming host, nothing was too much trouble. We will be back! Sofi and Mary

I stayed at The Carpenters for just one night on a recent business trip and I have to say was really impressed by Ray and Janet's warmth and friendliness, which was clear from the moment I arrived (despite having turned up about 5 hours earlier than what I'd originally estimated, which they played down completely saying was no trouble at...
