B&B located near the battlefield. Documented history of use by Union forces as a hospital during and after the battle. Beautifully kept up, lovely antiques, cozy, fresh farm eggs are one choice for breakfast, and acres of surrounding fields and woods to explore.

Great hospitality & lovely comfortable accommodation in a very historic building. Everything that you need in bedroom & ensuite is supplied and extra guest lounge downstairs for relaxing. Very good facilities & great food! Would definitely return.
