Friendly & relaxing
Needed to get away to de-stress. So glad we picked The Fox Inn , surrounded by beautiful countryside, rooms very comfortable, I loved the window seat. Phoebe and Brannon were great, nothing too much trouble and we loved our chats and banter every time we saw them, definitely made our stay even more enjoyable.

4/10 Fair

My room was superb. Nice size and a big comfortable bed. Very quiet location. However, I was let down the following morning as the chef failed to show up on time to cook breakfast. Upon check in I was asked what time I wanted breakfast. I went for 8am as I had attended for specific plans the following day. After ordering breakfast at 8, I was told 10 mins later that the chef was late and was only just starting to prep for breakfast. Consequently, I didn't receive my breakfast as I needed to leave. I would have given this place a glowing recommendation had I received the bed & breakfast I paid for but I only received the bed.
