Latest Reviews

Superb attention to the little details like preparing breakfast separately for vegetarians. We've stayed in 4 star rated places that cannot match the comforts of The Potting Shed. Ideally situated to explore the town on foot. Thanks for a wonderful stay and welcome especially by Doreen and Annamarie, and David for practical advice on places of interest. Wish we could stay longer.
