The situation is tranquil, being set back from the roads. An enjoyable walk through the woodland after dinner was enhanced through seeing the resident deer dash between the... More

The house is very charming, the grounds are beautiful and well kept, breakfast under a tree in the garden with a large pot of steaming coffee, fresh croissants and home made jam, and they have a pool with a setting perfect for a slow backstroke. We had... More

We found the perfect Bed & Breakfast to stay... More
