Peace and Comfort
Posted Jul 4, 2012
I was traveling with my daughter and neither of us had been to this part of the country before. We found the guest house quite easily, having been warned by reading previous reviews that it is well tucked away. The house itself stands in the middle of lovely fields - the only noise is the singing of birds. The owners and their dogs Alfie and Stella are very welcoming and instantly put you at your ease. The first impression is that everything sparkles with cleanliness and this is borne out when you see the immaculate condition of the decoration of the rooms. Our room, an en-suite twin, was admittedly quite compact and did not have any chairs, but this was compensated for by the comfort of the adjustable beds which could be converted into satisfactory recliners. The bathroom contained a spacious shower and was also beautifully clean. Breakfast in the morning was well-cooked tasty local food which set us up for the day to explore the surrounding area. We found two interesting local castles, Lacock village and Museum and Abbey, the brewery at Devises (but be warned you need to pre-book here if you want a tour) and we went as far afield as a Lavender farm in Somerset. All in all a very pleasant stay.
