Budleigh Guesthouse

B&b in Ladysmith

Just like something out of a BBC TV production with its verandas, trimmed lawns and stunning garden, this mansion has a range of neat, sophisticated rooms with wooden bedsteads, modern appliances and faux antiques. It's in the heart of Ladysmith, within walking distance of the main drag of historic buildings, as well as the town's scant few restaurants.

The pool is small and appears to be more for the ducks than the guests.
