          Looks like my prefect B&B but I can see no mention of children - so I guess they are not encouraged -which is fair enough but it would be helpful to say so. Thanks Jon

          Sorry I can't help with that...while we were staying there were just couples. I think all three rooms only have large King size beds. Best to check with the owners direct.

          We offer a £30 discount to room rates midweek (Sun-Thurs). That would currently be to £130. Check in time is 16.00, check out is 11.00. Thank you!
