“If you are frequent traveler and tired by standard hotels with their ordinary sets of facilities, services and decorations, this wonderful place may be recommended. Pimblett’s house has all necessary things for the convenient rest and staying. Though you’ll find there some problems with lighting and mains, creaky floor and doors, but it isn’t entity of this place. The true miracle atmosphere within is very difficult for describing. A lot of pictures, books, antiquarian things and knick knacks, old stylish furniture surround in this original old house. English spirit! Let’s try to account teapots of all incredible kinds in the kitchen: 100 more or less? Or test the real english breakfast outdoors in the little garden, when a squirrel is coming to join! It’s real lucky experience! Thanks a lot dear hosts!”

“There is no single empty space in the entire house, hallways, walls. Its all covered up in history and artifacts from all over the world. Lots of small gems collected over time. The house would come off as too busy but it doesn’t. It is very comfortable. The hosts are very friendly. Felt like i was staying at grandma’s house. Wouldn’t stay anywhere else if i’m in Toronto.”

“The breakfast is fantastic! John and Geoffrey are lovely people. It was hard to write this review because they are just so kind and pleasant. The bed is comfortable, it’s quiet and you can park a car outside.”
Lizzy, United Kindom

“Very clean, quiet, comfortable. Friendly and welcoming, given a map on arrival plus great restaurant recommendations in the area. Excellent hot breakfasts made by John, served out on a beautiful garden patio. Two bus stops within walking distance that ran regularly. ”
