Radfield House Review

If you like older-style Art & Craft houses, you'll love this 85-year-old home, and the good old-fashioned hospitality that goes with it. Bill and Jayne offer a fantastic welcome, and nothing seems too much trouble. Both guest rooms are upstairs, one with en-suite and the other with a private bathrooom (and spa bath). The downstairs lounge and breakfast rooms are lofty spaces with an easy feel that goes with the era. In summer you can fire up the barbecue in the peaceful garden or, any time of the year, Bill will run you into town to eat out. There's also a quiet den upstairs with a TV and a place to curl up with a book. Breakfast features homemade croissants, muesli, jams, and muffins.
