Good Hotel Guide Review
‘The combination of boho chic with a fine regard for comfort, and proprietors who behave like friends, is perfect.’ A family favourite, this farmhouse B&B in a secluded valley ‘seduces’ guests with its ‘abundant character and general bonhomie’. ‘Ebullient, efficient’ Richard and Sheila Johnston ‘welcome all with a generous spirit’ to their ‘relaxed’, ‘artistically extended’ 17th-century house. ‘It’s slightly haphazard, and may be rough around the edges, but its magic lies in having a quirky space where everyone can chat, get involved, and just be,’ say Guide inspectors in 2016. Mingle in the picture-lined lounge and ‘convivial’ bar; relax by the mural-decorated pool. Bedrooms and self-catering suites are ‘individually styled’, with English wallpaper, antiques, original art. ‘Imaginative’ dinners are bi-weekly, or by arrangement (‘timings relaxed’); an ‘ample tea’ is available for children. ‘Sheila is the queen of desserts’: chocolate truffle torte, crème brûlée, crumble with cream. Fortunately, ‘there are plenty of outdoor activities to balance this indulgence’: walks from the door, bicycles to borrow, games. (Angela Neustatter, RM)
