Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A home away from home’, this relaxed Edwardian country house is a ‘peaceful haven’ set within a dell of mature trees. Lorna Tyson and her husband, Donald, a farmer, run it with ‘thoughtful hospitality’ and a laid-back approach – ‘no notices or rules anywhere!’ Pretty bedrooms are in the main building and a converted coach house 20 yards away. Individually decorated, rooms overlook the garden or countryside. Both buildings have their own lounge and residents’ kitchen stocked with help-yourself home-made cakes, cheese, juice and hot drinks. Breakfast in the conservatory has super-local ingredients, including honey from garden beehives, milk from the Tysons’ dairy cows, apple juice from orchard fruit.
