We stayed 2 nights in this beautiful home. This was also our 40th wedding anniversary & we could not have found a more comfortable, welcoming, and wonderful B&B. Josephine and Charlie were so kind and generous! We felt at home & there may not be a better compliment. Thank you so much for your hospitality! We loved our stay here. Their gardens are immaculate and beautiful. The B&B is as beautiful as the photos!

Charlie and Josephine we're very kind, I made a booking error and Josephine was extremely kind to make an accommodation for us at the last minute. Thanks so much to our host, we were exhausted and so relieved to not have to find another place to stay at the end of the day. The house is beautiful, breakfast was a great spread to see and eat! Thanks!

We stayed at Mount Royd May 22, 2019. Charles is a wonderful host and a very nice person. The room was very comfortable with a beautiful view of the pasture across the road. The breakfast was phenomenal and so fresh! Thank you Charles for making us feel so welcome and special!

Josephine was away but Charlie did a superb job. We stopped in town to ask directions and the young lady said that they were the nicest people. She was right. beautiful room ; lovely breakfast and Charlie a I had the same sense of humour. We would definitely stay here again and actually would look forward to meeting Josephine. We hope her brother who had heart problems came thru with flying colours.
