Nice house, great dinner
We stay for two nights in Gourdon, is really near from beatiful places like Rocamadour or Sarlat, and cheaper to stay. The house is very nice in a rural style. When we arrive all was quiet and perfect to relax, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. You can also have dinner there, the price may seems a little high for dinner but you didn´t think this after eating. You have to prove it at least one night if you like morn cuisine. The room was nice, and everything ok. For us was a good choice to be quiet and rest, two great days to end our holidays in the Lot.

A very pleasant B&B, beautifully decorated, an exceptional chef (Mark) and a very nice couple!
We were 3,2+ a 16 year old, occupying 2 of the 3 rooms the Newtons have. The rooms are spacious, pleasant and calming. The highlight of the stay is the amazing cooking of Mark, a very skilled and creative chef. The dinners we had were just fantastic. We enjoyed our stay very much, and recommend it to our frieds.

Stopped here for one night on our way north through france. I only wish I had booked for longer. We where made to feel like royalty. The service and and quality of accomodation where outstanding. The food is something that must be experienced to be truly appreciated. Clare and Mark run something that is extra special. I cannot say enough good things about this place. If you are in the area you simply must try. If you are not then make a detour, (however long). Thank you both for our stay and our best wishes for the future. This place is a hidden gem. Their passion shows in every detail. I will find some excuse somehow to revisit at the earliest opportuninty.
