Verified reviewexcellent

Just what the Dr ordered! A place to stay away from the madding crowds. I asked for a room which was private in order for me to have my own space. What a wonderful surprise, l couldn't have asked for more. Peace, comfort, good food, wonderful bird life, long walks in nature, yet close enough to Sedgefield where i visited friends etc.

If you are looking for a beautiful quiet out-of-the-way place, The Old Trading Post is IT! The place is very comfortable, tastefully decorated, full of thoughtful little touches and very quiet. The hosts are lovely and couldn't be more helpful. As we relaxed in the lovely surroundings, we were able to bird-watch right outside our room. I highly recommend it and can't wait to return.
