Wonderful charm and character.
Two couples, two rooms, three nights. We very much enjoyed our stay. Waters Country House is off the beaten path but the charm and peace and access to the grounds and various sitting rooms is refreshing. The owners are charming, engaging, and go out of their way to welcome and make your stay pleasant such as lending us umbrellas when a sudden down poor of rain erupted just as we were checking in and had left all our own rain gear in our car. The personally cooked to order breakfasts are wonderful. Rooms are a bit tight but very accommodating. Would return again and again.

8/10 Very good

What a beautiful property, stunning!! Wolfgang & Maria are absolutely amazing hosts - kind, welcoming, they make you feel like family. The rooms are large and comfortable with breathtaking views. The main house has a few sitting rooms, each with a fire place, books and games. Really lovely outside and inside.

This was the b&b i was excited about, and it didn't disappoint! The building is set in beautiful country side, the common rooms offer just an experience, warm and intriguing, and the owners were absolutely lovely. It is also well located to the town nearby where we had great dinner at the Monks. Only downside, our room was not very sound proof and the shower curtain is not the best experience! The bed was very comfortable and the room very pretty. Thank you for hosting us 🙂
