  • If you enjoy personal, helpful yet unobtrusive service
  • If you are concerned about the environment, and want to stay somewhere that cares as much as you do
  • If you are a Wolsey Lodges "afficionado", and appreciate that brand of unobtrusive quality and luxury that all Wolsey Lodges deliver
  • If you are looking for a peaceful place, but still close to restaurants, shopping and things to do
  • If you want your B&B to have an "excellent" rating on TripAdvisor
  • If you want secure parking, or even garage parking for your car, motorcycle or bike
  • If you want to bring your pet dog along; pets are allowed in rooms and we have a dog-safe garden and local walks

Why might you choose NOT to stay

  • If you really want a hotel - 24 hour check-in; restaurant, foyer, shop, shoe-shine flunky...
  • If you prefer not to share the breakfast table with others - we have just the one (nice, Georgian) table 
  • If you are concerned about staying in a B&B that welcomes pets - and has several of its own
  • If you want to be in the centre of town, in a bright, buzzing environment
  • If you are not very mobile, and relying on public transport; the taxis are good (after 9:30am), but the bus service infrequent and it's half a mile to the bus stop
  • If you cannot manage a flight of stairs; all our rooms are on the first floor
  • If you want your B&B to offer evening meals - although we do have a dining room service where you can bring in a take away and eat it in comfort
  • If you want breakfast WILDLY early - we're not that good at getting up at (or before) dawn!.  If you really need early breakfast (i.e. before 7:30) call us and we'll see what we can do
  • If you want a place with a bar; we are unlicensed
