Delightfully quirky - it felt like being a picture book, with chiming grandfather clocks and the occasional short sheep traffic jam outside the dining room window. The attention to detail was remarkable, the meals were cooked to perfection and exquisitely served, using fresh produce and home made jams & jelly. They was extremely helpful with all the small disasters that accompany a family off to a wedding with a cello. Our whole stay was closely inspected and enhanced by the magnificent Misha the cat.

What a lovely place to stay! The room was clean, comfortable and lots of attention to detail with fresh flowers, selection of bathroom products, kettle / cups / fresh milk in the morning. Oh and Julia cooked up a lovely, full English breakfast too which set us up for the whole day. David and Julia were very attentive hosts and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed and went the extra mile to make sure of this.

Remarquable étape, environnement splendide, accueil extraordinaire, chambre très agréable. David est un homme extrêmement attentionné, répondant à toutes les demandes. Breakfast grandiose de très bonne qualité. Notre chien a été très bien accueilli aussi. Vraiment un séjour exceptionnel qu'on recommencera au plus vite et qu'on recommande expressément.
