We can onlly echo what other people have said about this Bed & Breakfast. Beautiful house, comfortable bedroom with country view, filling breakfast of cereals, fruit, toast with honey and preserves, and tea or coffee. The hosts are very welcoming and friendly and treat you as friends not just customers. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you, Fay & Stephen,...

We stayed three nights with this wonderful couple. Their hospitality is first class, I was ill and their care and concern was excellent, helpful but not intrusive. The accommodation was top rate, exceptional really, but the rates were very reasonable indeed. It was a lovely bonus to our holiday to meet people with a genuine desire to please. Thank you...

Our lives have moved in a different direction and we have sold our business in Springs Road and moved to a delightful property in 'The Elms on Prebbleton'. Tourism and welcoming visitors to our lovely country is in our veins and our new home can...
