Good Hotel Guide Review

Bright and bookish, David Gibbon’s urbane B&B embraces the wonky angles and rough-hewn stone of the 16th-century coaching house it occupies. In the heart of a literary town, this is a chic retreat, with quirky artwork and modern accessories that complement old beams and vintage furniture. The airy bedrooms are comfortably styled; a supply of home-made biscuits sweetens the deal. Catch up on reading in the book-strewn sitting room, where a huge squashy sofa sits before a wood-fired stove. In the morning, breakfast on tasty vegetarian options, home-made fruit salads and compotes, and locally baked bread. A wealth of walks and river-based activities (canoeing, fishing) are within easy reach.
