Pitfour House

A quintessentially English experience…

What are the hallmarks of a perfect Wolsey Lodge B&B? Splendid food, convivial company and truly wonderful hospitality and this is exactly what awaits at Pitfour House. Tea and homemade delicacies are served to guests on their arrival, after which guests may enjoy the comforts of an elegantly furnished formal sitting room to unfurl after a long journey.

There is another separate, and more relaxed sitting room with television, and a delightful panelled dining room where guests dine superbly in the company of their hosts. Being of typical 18th Century proportions, the house also offers well-appointed comfortable, bedrooms with king size Vi-Spring beds, one with an en-suite shower room and the other with its own adjacent bathroom.

The main ½ acre walled garden is to the rear of the accommodation and is stocked with mature shrubs and trees, a productive greenhouse and a thriving vegetable garden. Dinner is a thoroughly seasonal and local occasion, presented beautifully and using vegetables from the garden, whilst breakfast has more than a dash of healthy options for bed and breakfast guests to choose from. 

We had an excellent stay, Martin & Frances are very hospitable hosts; good company and food in lovely homely surroundings.
