The Experience

Breakfast among the remains of a Protestant chapel, sleep in a townhouse, one of a terrace built in 1758; John and Lee-Anne are its second owners. Delightful, humorous Australians, they have restored their elegant mansion and are very much part of the community. Graciously high ceilings, a sweeping spiral staircase, lovely great windows in an oasis of ancient, stream-kissed oaks… arrive as strangers, leave as friends. The food is fantastic and the pastel-shaded bedrooms are generous, with just enough antiques; one even has the vast original claw-footed bath. The attention to detail is exceptional and readers sing their praises.

Stayed here for a week for my daughters wedding. John and Leanne were brilliant hosts, they made sure we had a great stay. We would definitely stay here again.

What a great place to stay, a large bedroom and ensuite in a magnificent townhouse. Eating dinner in the remains of a Protestant chapel, with other guests. Enjoying breakfast in the large dining room. What a shame we could only stay one night. Mary and Tim.

Such a good friendly welcome from John and LeeAnne. Comfortable rooms, wonderful food and great facilities. Excellent place from which to explore guided by their wide knowledge of the area. Definitely going again

We had so much fun here. John and Lee Anne are very good hosts. We feasted at home one night and in the restaurant across the road the following night, both times eating Lee Anne's wonderful food. We also had a terrific time at the food market one night, eating from trestle tables set up along the middle of the village street and ending up dancing with the children of the village to the live band. We certainly left feeling more like friends than B&B guests and hope to return one day.
