This small guesthouse is run by Matt and Madga, a welcoming British-Czech couple who have transformed their former home into a guesthouse (they live in the adjacent building). It's set in a 17th-century Grade II listed building and, with only five rooms, the atmosphere is private and intimate. The themed rooms feature wide-ranging designs, from Indian to Retro, thought up by owner Magda.


This is a small guesthouse with limited facilities, although the owners go out of their way to make guests feel at home. In spring and summer, you'll find freshly picked flowers in the rooms, while celebratory cakes can be prepared in-house for special occasions. There's on-street parking, as well as a free car park nearby, making it particularly convenient if you're travelling by car. There are a handful of tables in a small courtyard tucked away at the back of the building where you can sip a coffee and catch a few rays during the warmer months.
