Jo was instantly welcoming and hospitable, making me feel very welcome in her lovely home. She was accommodating of my late arrival and made me feel right at home. The room was perfect, spotlessly clean, warm and cosy, with a huge lovely bathroom right next door - which I had to (website hidden) was super friendly, we had some very interesting chats over cups of tea and a really nice breakfast in the morning, she also very kindly gave me a lift to the station the next day. I'd really recommend staying here, the house is great, Jo was very very nice and the location and ease of finding it etc is perfect. Thanks so much!
I have stayed here twice when cycling in the area. Martin and Jo are a very welcoming and make you feel at home instantly wih a cup of tea and a chat. The room is very comfortable and there is also a garage outside for bike storage.
Can't fault anything and look forward to staying many more times.
We had a lovely stay in Jo and Martin's toasty home with delicious breakfasts (tasty muesli and bread), comfy beds and a warm welcome with lots of great stories from Jo. We had a brief meeting with the lovely Enzo too. Highly recommended. Thank you!
Had an absolutely fantastic time with Martin and Jo! Description was completely accurate...except that they failed to mention how fabulous the shower was!! It was better than most 4 star hotels! :) Place was very convenient for what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go. We would absolutely stay with them again!
