Excellent all round
Great place to stay, regular visitors to the town and have tried a few different B&Bs over the years, this is definately the best. Great hosts, made us feel very welcome, food excellent too. (almost tempted to give it a bad review so it isnt booked up when we want to come back!)

The Perfect place to be!
The Cavendish is an old property but is kept in mint condition, not a cobweb insight,the decor is lovely, soft furnishings all match in all the rooms. nothing is tatty looking.The staff become friends to everyone. Breakfasts are to die for and are a really good set up for the day. The Cavendish and staff are 1st class.The location in in the quieter part of the town.
