Good Hotel Guide Review
Guests praise the ‘outstanding attention to detail’ at Gary and Lindsay Ashcroft’s B&B, in an 18th-century rectory at the end of a leafy drive. ‘They’ve thought of everything when it comes to visitors’ comfort, including special treats in the bedrooms.’ The ‘charming, welcoming’ hosts greet visitors with offers of tea in the sitting room, where, in cold weather, a log fire burns in front of deep leather sofas. Up the stairs, homely garden-view bedrooms come equipped with sherry and chocolates; massages and beauty treatments can also be arranged. An evening meal is not served, ‘but the Ashcrofts sent us an extensive list of restaurants before we arrived’. In the morning, a communal breakfast is taken in the dining room overlooking the garden. Cereals and fresh fruits are ‘in abundance’; generous portions of cooked dishes use local meat, and eggs from free-range hens. ‘Friendly and helpful’, the Ashcrofts are pleased to advise on local towns to visit, and the wealth of activities nearby: golf, boat trips, heritage railway rides and more. Ask, too, for a packed lunch – ye shall receive. (AR, and others)
