Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Helpful and attentive hosts’ Gary and Lindsay Ashcroft run their B&B in this ‘handsome’ Georgian rectory standing in large, well-tended gardens. ‘We were given the warmest of welcomes; tea was offered in the sitting room as soon as we were ready,’ said a Guide inspector on an earlier visit. ‘The Ashcrofts clearly love this place and love what they are doing; everything – from the furniture to the pictures to the pretty cups on the bedroom tea tray – has been chosen with care.’ Furnished with antiques and paintings, the large sitting room has books, guides, magazines, a log fire in cooler months; upstairs, traditionally decorated bedrooms, all with garden views, have special touches such as sherry and chocolates. A communal breakfast is taken around one large table: guests help themselves to juices, cereals and yogurts; cooked dishes use local eggs and meats, including bacon cured by ‘a butcher down the road’. Vegetarian options are available. Evening meals are not provided, but the hosts have many recommendations of eating places close by. Sandy beaches and cliff walks nearby; packed lunches and picnics can be arranged. (Lesley Winship)
