Really great place to stay - my partner and myself stayed at Rookery Nook for 2 nights to attend a wedding in the village. Elaine is a great host, very accommodating and makes you feel right at home. The accommodation was very comfortable, well equipped and spotless. The continental style breakfast was very generous with a really good range of choices - genuine thought has gone into it. Great views from the garden which seemed immaculate (definite case of lawn envy here) and the village itself and nearby estate and reservoir are beautiful with an interesting history. A real bargain and would definitely stay again.

As soon as we arrived you and john greeted us with open arms. You'd already asked us what we wanted and you'd gone out of your way to make our stay very special.

Elain made us very welcome. Her accommodation was home away from home . Her bubbly personality made us very comfortable straight up. Their home was spotless .Our room was beautiful with everything we needed . The beautiful breakfast room was lovely . Elain served us a lovely breakfast ,which included fresh raspberries from her garden. We would highly recommend their home to stay . Amazing garden out the back which we were able to enjoy .

I always respond to guest within a few hours of receiving a request but because of the time difference for overseas guests it makes my percentage response rate look very low so please do not be put off!
