Gill and Colin made us feel welcome even before we arrived by guiding us toward their lovely property and waiting out front for us to arrive. They were wonderful hosts who really couldn't do enough for us and were a wealth of knowledge about the area. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and perfect for our family group of 6 adults and 2 children. Breakfasts were invitingly set up in the dining room and were delicious, comprising of wholesome foods including exceptional homemade bread, yogurt and granola. The pool was an added bonus which our grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed. Overall it was truly a five star experience and I would highly recommend a stay at The Chestnuts. Terry C.

Colin and Jill were fantastic hosts. Accommodation was spotlessly clean and had absolutely everything we needed including toiletries hairdryer, fan etc. Nothing was to much trouble and we were very grateful to be able to have a late check in at a usually unsociable hour. Bed was really comfortable, and an extra camp bed was put into our room for our 4 year old and even included personal touches like child friendly duvet cover and a teddy. Both the cooked breakfast and continental breakfast were amazing. Lovely fresh locally sourced produce and homemade preserves and granola which was a wonderful touch. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough, you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be returning and staying for longer next time as there is so much to explore in the local area.

Gill and Colin were perfect hosts. They went to great lengths to make our stay as comfortable as possible. It is a beautiful home and I wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the conservatory and the pool. The breakfast was memorable with freshly laid eggs, home made bread, jams and award winning WI marmalade. Colin picked us some strawberries to have with home made yogurt. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone traveling in that part of the country.

Collin and Gill were superb hosts. Their house is just beautifully decorated, where the attention to detail was just outstanding. The garden is a little heaven on earth and we were blessed with sun and an enjoyable afternoon by the pool! Breakfast was fit to a king, with homemade bread and jams. The two labradors were also a delight! I really can't recommend them highly enough and we hope to return!

Because I couldn't finish my job during the day I needed to stay over night. I booked on sort notice. Colin and Gill responded very fast. The accommodation looks like shown on the pictures and it's a very calm surrounding. You can feel that Gill and Colin don't just offer their place for business reasons, but they want to meet people and want to host.
