What a beautiful setting and a very friendly welcome. I had booked a special room for a couple of nights and when we entered it all looked delightful. Sally had greeted us by taking our credit card details and took us upstairs. I struggled with my case and bits. She showed us how to open and shut the curtains with a cord! And how the TV would swivel on its stand. We also had a power shower over the bath. Bliss! Breakfast is up to 09.30.
Left on our own to unpack I noticed a tray under the bed. Oh! It's for our shoes. I decided to shower. Amazing power but no adequate means of keeping the water in the bath. I now have a wet room. And where oh where do I hang the towel. The TV seems a good spot! The following morning we hare down for breakfast just in time and it is superb hot and tasty tho non of the black pepper mills work. And I finish with a toasted croissant, a new one on me.
This is an idyllic setting and with a few tweaks would be wonderful. But we had a good giggle.
