Positive Reviews

A rural gem.

Guests loved getting away from it all at this peaceful, bucolic retreat. From the moment they drove up the driveway to see the house in all its splendour, guests had high hopes, and it seems that expectations were met. First class customer service was only eclipsed by the memorable breakfast, and everything was in place to sit back and enjoy the English countryside.

Top marks from families.

Guests travelling with young children were particularly pleased with Highwaymans. Toys and games were provided, and of course there was plenty of space to run around. Cribs and highchairs were also easily arranged, leaving a stress-free visit for parents.

Excellent accommodation.

Rooms were described as spacious with plenty of character. If you are in search of a unique property, with a comfortable bed and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, this bed and breakfast fits the bill. Guests couldn't recommend a stay here enough, and would jump at the chance to return for the total package.
