The pretty village has hanging baskets decorating shops and riverside, and Tim and Caroline’s house was built in the arboretum of Oswald Mosley’s former family seat. Comfy sitting rooms have heaps of books, art, a log fire; bedrooms (one in the studio) have tip-top linen, garden views and shortbread. Wake for a generous Aga breakfast: homemade granola, Tim’s bread, local bacon – or continental with croissants. You’re on the edge of the Peak District National Park – head out for walks, cycling, National Trust houses galore. Return to the stunning garden for afternoon tea and cake: unusual trees, Italianate pond, sunny spots…

Excellent experience having just spent 3 very relaxing nights at Westmorland Cottage B & B. Amazing breakfasts, packed full of flavour. Very warm welcome on arrival and served tea and delicious homemade lemon drizzle cake. Excellent experience.

Eileen, Alton, hampshire

The whole experience was quite excellent and in the highest tradition of Alastair Sawday. Tea and cake on arrival, a well appointed and very attractive room, breakfast that would put any first class hotel to shame. Caroline could not have been more helpful.

John, Blythburgh, suffolk

Caroline and Tim were hugely welcoming, our rooms in their very attractive home were exceptionally clean and very comfortable. The home made granola and cooked breakfast was just delicious and superior on every level to one I had just paid £25 for at renowned London establishment the week before ! As per a previous review, I can recommend without hesitation.

Julien, Godalming

Absolutely beautiful and charming B&B. Our room was cosy and so clean. It was one of the best beds I have slept in. Breakfast was delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

D, Birmingham

Caroline & Tim made our family party of 6 extremely welcome. We very much appreciated the quiet location, lovely garden, comfortable bedrooms, excellent breakfast and attention to detail everywhere. We were delighted to be able to celebrate a significant birthday together in such a special place.


Tranquil location with plenty to see and do not far away. Lovely welcome from friendly hosts, beautiful home, immaculate decor, comfortable and spacious rooms, scrumptious breakfasts. Recommended without hesitation by Ian & Marie.

Ian, Reading

We had a fantastic stay at this wonderful home. Very relaxing, comfortable beds, spacious bedrooms which are well equipped and fabulous breakfast in the morning.

Michelle, Tarifa

What can I say about this lovely B&B except that it is one of the best that my husband and I have ever stayed in. Beautifully appointed from the decor to the bedlinen and such warm and friendly hosts and set in lovely, quiet and peaceful grounds. The breakfast was a real treat with the added bonus of Tim's home-made bread! Definitely 5 star! Andrew and Carolyn

Carolyn, Warminster, wiltshire

Caroline and Tim are charming and excellent hosts. The house is beautiful and immaculate and the rooms are very comfortable. The breakfast was first class. The local pub, The Ginni, serves surprisingly good food. We really enjoyed our stay and would strongly recommend this B&B to others.

Rupert, London

We only stayed one night and wished it had been longer. The hospitality shown to us by Caroline and Tim along with the pleasure of staying in their beautiful home and the delicious breakfast prepared made our stay perfect. Nothing was too much trouble and Caroline kindly suggested and booked us a restaurant for dinner. Would not hesitate to recommend a visit.
