Availability and cost
"We preferred the twin room because of the en-suite and the garden view. The double overlooks the road, although it is a very quiet private road. The property is a bungalow, so both rooms are on the ground floor."
"We stayed in the Lavender ( twin ) room. By all accounts from our fellow guests the other room (double) was just as lovely."
"Stayed in the twin room which was very good and overlooked the garden."
"Only two B&B rooms, one twin the other double. Twin has ensuite, Double as own full bathroom but is not en-suite. Self contained flat also."
"The twin room is more spacious than the double"
