Never have I stayed in someplace where the person who runs the establishment has been so rude and I would never stay here again or recommend that anyone puts themselves through what she put us through!! We arrived just as another couple were arriving and we went in the door

I booked this one well in advance, initially for myself and my wife for a booked trip. Due to another event my wife could not go, so I took my 7 year old daughter with me. I didn't even think to notify the owner. On arrival I found out that the premise policy is for older

View from car park ("Prophet Hill"), which is about a 100-yard walk from the B&B.
The cost is £40 per night including breakfast. If you go onto the website you will see which rooms I have left available for those dates. You can decide if these are suitable for what you want and book using the secure booking button at the top of the page. Anything else please let me know. Kind regards Caroline

Good morning There's no problem with that time. My husband or myself will wait up for you to show you to your rooms. If there are 3 adults I either have a family room -- this has a double bed and a single bed in it and is ensuite or I have a twin room ( 2 x single beds) and a single room. Both these 2 rooms share the same bathroom. If you need any further information please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards Caroline
