Your room is a comfortable double with private facilities, you can use the lounge and garden. We have off street parking. Plenty to explore locally too.

The space

This is a historic house, but also a lovely family home full of beautiful antique furniture and interesting detail. (The B and B business is already well established and has been awarded 4 stars by Visit England). We can be flexible and negotiate the price for longer stays.

Guest access

We love to show guests around and are happy to let you explore the house, gardens and 9 room cellar! You have a private double room and shower room, also the private use of the upstairs lounge where breakfast can be provided if required for a small extra amount.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to interact with guests as much as they want, equally we are happy to leave guests to themselves. There is an extended family here and we all come and go! We have plenty of local maps and information, if you are here to explore the area. We will do all we can to make your stay happy and comfortable.

Breakfast can be provided for a small extra cost. We have a friendly dog, but can easily keep her away if you aren't a dog person. We are happy to have well behaved pets to stay.

This is a lovely central location with a friendly and accommodating host and was ideal for my overnight stay. I particularly enjoyed the breakfast provided as an optional extra.

A really lovely room in a lovely home. The room was very clean and bright and beautifully furnished. A very comfortable bed with excellent feather pillows. Lots of nice touches. Breakfast was served in a sumptious sitting room and nothing seemed too much trouble. Warm, friendly people: would definitely recommend.

Some places you want to keep secret because they are so special. Dropping in to Rowan's beautiful home after a tiring motorway drive was like reaching sanctuary. It's beautiful, yes but also so well thought through for the visitor. The little touches are generous and appreciated and consequently you feel you are in a home. Rowan and her family were so welcoming and hospitable. Breakfast is served in an elegant, fascinating drawing room and was bountiful and excellent. And the garden! Well, you'll have to go yourselves and see something very special. Highly recommended.

A Charming place to stay with lots of interesting history and artefacts. Lovely room with everything provided, from fresh milk, to any toiletry you could imagine!! We had a very comfortable night in a fascinating place , and I would thoroughly recommend Nicholson House.
