A fantastic place to stay!
We needed a place to stay for one night after bird watching in Suffolk, that was on our way home to Sussex. We were given the warmest of greetings, shown our beautiful bedroom and private bathroom (a very deep bath - lovely!!). TV, tea, coffee and biscuits provided in the room, hair drier, fluffy towels, fluffy dressing gown and slippers. Breakfast served at 8.30am Sunday morning was just right, including decaf tea which I sometimes find hard to get in other establishments.

The decor throughout is to a very high standard and we immediately felt at home. I cannot fault our stay at all - thank you!!
