The period house is gorgeous with loads of original features and the modern Garden Room has the most stunning views.  Rooms are fresh, clean and up-to-date (loved the shower!).  Had the full English breakfast (delicious) which set us up for our beautiful walks around the area.  Need more time to explore so will definitely return to this lovely B&B.
