Lumley`s Place B&B - Do you feel like a break away from the hustle and bustle of the city and escape the network of an ill-begotten world with silly laws and immoral kings? Do you need to put your feet up and to hear the birds outside your window, crickets at night, a crackling fire peradventure sipping a quality red wine from the Heart of the Wine Lands or how about a peaceful stream to sing you a lullaby as you put spine to feather.

Perhaps you wish to visit a place nestled among the trees in some idyllic town with spectacular views and that you have never heard the name of but you see it sometimes in your dreams.

Legend has it that when winter comes without a star only a special fireplace can truly deal with the bone chilling cold and what if it is not east of the sun and west of the moon, would consider going there.

Ever wanted to experience a truly peaceful valley rich culture, steeped in tradition and which prides itself on a legacy that dates back to a more innocent time than our own where the streets are narrow and once was cobbled stone.

Have you ever allowed for unpretentious beauty to move you, or to let simplistic splendor engulf you or did you ever simply surrender so the ambience of a can truly overwhelm you.

Would you like to stand with yours arms akimbo when September heralds to return of Spring and with childlike anticipation watch as a valley in full bloom from orchard to wild flower from Daisy to Dahlia and all Flora in between simply let it move you.

Even still perhaps you just simply love to get in touch with your own soul for a while or moment or longer so no single stimulus can escape through the dragnet of your senses - your choice.

But if you answered YES to any of the above then please do yourself a favor and consider a visit and allow us to become part of your memories and just imagine for a moment telling your grandchildren a story starting thus.

You know once I spend an unforgettable time in village called Pniel at a Bed & Breakfast called Lumley`s Place.
