The Experience

This 16th-century house is as all homes should be: loved and lived-in. And, with three-foot-thick walls, Persian rugs on flagstoned floors, sit-in fireplaces and stone-mullioned windows, it’s gorgeous. The garden, enclosed by old stone walls, is full of birdsong and roses. One bedroom has a secret door leading to a duck-egg blue bathroom; the other room, smaller, has a Tudor stone fireplace and wonderful garden views. Unbend in the book-filled sitting room, breakfast by a vast fireplace: homemade bread, award-winning marmalade and eggs from the hens. Karin is vivacious and looks after you beautifully. A charming, down-to-earth place.

We stayed for three nights in this lovely old house, which is warm and full of colour. Karin and James are both welcoming hosts. They are friendly, interested and good humoured and have a wealth of local knowledge. Our room and ensuite were extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. Karin cooked a delicious supper for us one evening and each day we enjoyed a cooked breakfast and afternoon tea and cake in front of the log fire - a real treat!

We had a warm welcome, including a gluten free cake for our coeliac friend, a wood fire in the sitting room and a tray of drinks which couls be purchased at £3 a glass for charity. The rooms were beautiful with tea, coffee and biscuits and a lavender spray to use should you need help to sleep. Breakfast was whatever you wanted it to be with gluten free bread and sausages on offer should you need them. We relaxed in front of the wood fire in our private sitting room and shared a glass of wine with Karin.

Jane, York

Best experience we've ever had in a b&b! Lovely room in a gorgeous house, excellent home made bread and preserves for a delicious breakfast; a walled garden all around, fresh eggs every morning and Karin who suggests you every day the best things to do.


In this wonderful historic house Karin and James have created a homely Bed and Breakfast. Quiet rooms and comfy beds to sleep in. Log fire and homemade cake on arrival. Great breakfast with many things homemade. Sausage and bacon locally sourced. Recommended without hesitation.
