Without question, this is the best B&B I have ever stayed in. I can't believe it only gets 3 stars on some sites. Should get 100. P.S. Although we do share the same surname, I am not aware of any connection unless it occurred back in the 16th century.

I had a wonderful stay in Cavengarden. The room had everything I needed and the breakfast set me up for the day. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful drive up but nobody home. We knocked and knocked and knocked and rang doorbell. We arrived at 5:30 p.m., right when we were supposed to check in. There were two dogs out front, but that was the only sign of life. My husband was filled with forboding that we seemed to be the only ones out there in the woods. I contacted her by e-mail letting her know we were there waiting 20 minutes. I never to this day got a reply back. Luckily another B & B down the street took us in. Do not book this.

We have stayed here 4 or 5 times now and love it every time. We have stayed in the Manor house and stayed in the self-catering units. Agnes is a wonderful host. Can't wait to stay here again!

We arrived just as a sleet storm was coming! Agnes met us at the door and told us to wait 5 minutes and the weather would change, she was right! We enjoyed this older home full of character. After arriving and unpacking, we decided to go on an adventure drive around the area. When we returned Agnes had warmed our room with a clean space heater and had left a menu for breakfast on our bed. Wonderful house, surrounding area including town and hostess.
