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)

Guest comments

'Beautiful property in a peaceful location. Extremely comfortable beds and the rooms were lovely and clean. Good breakfasts and very helpful hosts. ' - Lesley Winship - August, 2014
'Gary and Lindsay seem to have thought of everything for the comfort of their guests. The rooms are beautifully decorated, quiet and well equipped. The guest sitting room is large with sumptuous green leather suites; TV with Sky box is available. There are books, guides and magazines, a blazing log fire. The breakfast room has a huge dining table and high-backed chairs. An abundance of cereals and fruits are a prelude to the arrival of your (large) cooked breakfast. ' - Allen Robson - May, 2014
'Wonderfully welcoming Lindsay and Gary, and our dog was perfectly happy in the kennel. ' - David Lipsey - September, 2013
