Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Such a peaceful, quiet place to stay. The log fire was lit ready for our arrival.’ A new endorsement this year for ‘perfect hosts’ David and Louise Farrance’s wisteria-festooned B&B. ‘They are terrific hosts,’ agrees a returning Guide regular in 2018, ‘continually seeking to improve the property.’ Dating from around 1436, the traditional longhouse has been altered over the centuries, but it has retained its character, beams and 17th-century panelling. Returning guests are ‘treated like friends’, new arrivals plied with tea and home-made cake. The Orchard Suite has two bedrooms and a family bathroom with roll-top bath and corner shower. The Snug, over two floors, has a separate entrance, a lounge with log fire, an espresso machine and fridge. At night, plates, cutlery and glasses can be supplied for a take-away meal, but the local gastropub is recommended. A ‘great choice’ at breakfast includes summer tomatoes from the greenhouse, and award-winning pork-and-marmalade sausages, eggs laid by the Frog Street hens. It is cooked on the Aga and served at a communal table. ‘I enjoyed talking to other guests. A perfect break away.’ (Tracey Bowden, Michael Gwinnell)

Guest comments

'As last year, we sated on our way to and from Cornwall. My praise last year remains entirely valid; David and Louise are terrific, continually seeking to improve the property ' - Michael Gwinnell - June, 2018
'We stayed in the Snug, Such a peaceful place, The log fire was lit ready for our arrival. Comfortable bed, and we enjoyed soaking in the rolltop bath. David and Louise were perfect hosts. Great choice for breakfast - we enjoyed talking to other guests. . ' - Tracey Bowden - October, 2017
'Our fifth visit. The ideal stop-over on our way to and from Cornwall. David and Louise now treat us like old friends. They have stopped offering light suppers but are happy to provide plates, cutlery and glasses for guests to eat their own take- away meal, which they request should be consumed in the dining room or the sitting room, which latter we had to ourselves, enjoying the log burner that had been lit for us. ' - Michael Gwinnell - March, 2017
