Barry, the host/owner, was very friendly and cheerful. We felt right at home. The house is decorated with lots of interesting antiques, and the breakfast was the best English breakfast I've had so far in the UK.

On our first trip to the U.K and not knowing much about the area, we could not have picked a better place to stay.
