A wonderful weekend, a warm friendly welcome. The personal touches from Katie made all the difference. Clean comfortable room with beautiful decor. Outstanding home cooked food, with additional unexpected extras ie sherry in the room, cosy log fire, and Katies home-made cookies and courgette loaf and preserves. All of which have helped to make our weekend away extra special. Will definitely be recommending The Old Manse to family and friends. Many thanks Katie x Mark and Nicky Colchester Essex November 2013
A real home from home stay. It's the little things that make the difference, like the cup of tea and cookie when you arrive and the conversation about the area and general topics! The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was fantastic, love the size of the shower enclosure - too many B and B cubicles are just too restrictive. Carl Katie is a very hospitable lady who has thought carefully about the little things that make your day more comfortable. Would highly recommend. Lesley Carl and Lesley Oxfordshire 19th November
