A Delightful B&B

We stayed one night whilst attending River Cottage HQ Saturday evening. As everyone has said Ruth and Tim go out of the way with their hospitality. It is a lovely house and immaculately presented. Ruth and Tim organised a taxi for six of us to travel to and from River Cottage,everything went perfectly. Thank you so much for such a lovely stay."
