What a gem this place is if you want to get chilled out with fantastic carp fishing, a relaxing pool and great food . Julian and Jude are lovely hosts and have got the balance just right, brilliant to deal with, there if you need help and local knowledge, otherwise let you get on with it. We have stayed before in the Gardener’s cottage, and had a great time, but for this return trip we took the Bread Oven over August Bank Holiday week. This is perfect accommodation for two people, cosy, romantic and really works well. Jude's meals are amazing, can be booked while you are there, and Julian gives the story behind your wine choice which all makes for a great way to spend an evening. The carp fishing is amazing and we both smashed our PB's using the in-house boilies, catching a series of 30lb+ carp, all in beautiful condition. Can't recommend this place enough. We are already planning another trip, this time for a fortnight in the Fisherman’s cottage with our family in July next year.
