" We are just outside the very pretty historic village of Winster, which boasts 2 pubs ( both serve food ) a village shop, a school, a church, Morris Dancers and the infamous Winster Guisers ! . Winster celebrated its village carnival known as the Winster Wakes, and Secret Garden Weekend. The latter was yet another a fantastic event with jazz bands and live music throughout the village. Afternoon teas and cakes were consumed in huge quantity as well as homemade ice cream - the rhubarb and orange being my favourite! For those who haven t seen Winster, the cottages lie in clusters into the hillside with a myriad of narrow alleyways passing through, this makes for sheltered ' secret ' gardens often completely hidden from sight."
" One of the best B&B s we have stayed at in a long time. The hosts Simon & Helena are friendly and the little touches are brilliant. Breakfast in their kitchen is a very nice touch as was the homemade bread. We will be back again if we are this way up again." - Norman & Janet B ( May '13 )
" Thank you both very much for making our stay here so enjoyable. Your house (and your company ! ) is delightful and it was the personal touches and added extras ( home baked bread & biscuits/ cakes & scones to name but a few ) that set Old Nursery House apart from the other B&Bs we have experienced. We will be returning as soon as we can !" Diana & Christopher W ( May '13 )
