A wonderful B&B in beautiful surroundings
We were lucky enough to be the first ever guests at Nutsford House! We could not have hoped for a more pleasant experience; the hosts were as friendly as can be, the house is absolutely lovely and set in wonderful surroundings. On arrival, we were greeted with tea and scones and got to meet the new puppy and one of the cats :-) When we returned to the house in the evening, the only sounds were the nearby river and the hooting of an owl. And in the morning we had an absolutely lovely breakfast. Can't recommend the place highly enough!
