Breakfasts are all homemade or local, sausages are made from an old family recipe, eggs from free range chickens, and special diets can be catered for. Guests have a wide range of interesting places to visit, from Cathedrals to historic houses, the seashore to bird sanctuaries. The local lanes are ideal for walking or cycling.
