Guest rooms, facilities and the garden:
Cleeve House has two guest rooms, a double and a twin bedded room, sharing a bathroom and toilet. Some of the extras, traditionally expected in hotels, are not be found here as your hosts, Tuppie and Richard aim to welcome you more as part of the family, emphasising friendliness and hospitality.
Guests may have private use of the comfortable sitting room if they wish.
Ideal for you, if you are travelling with children, Stable Cottage, 25 yards behind Cleeve House, is self-contained, with two twin bedded rooms, sharing bath and toilet. The sitting room has access to a private sun patio. It also has a fitted kitchen where guests can cater for themselves if they prefer, otherwise breakfast is provided in Cleeve House. Stable Cottage is well suited to guests of limited mobility.
