Alastair sums this up as a 'tip-top B&B in an 18th-century house on top of a peaceful hill'. Guests are treated to 'home-baked bread, delicious tea-time cakes and scrummy jams - on fine days you can take it outside', he says. 'Bright and sunny bedrooms, all with views over the lovely walled garden, create a mood of relaxed indulgence.'
