Heather and Peter welcomed us with a cup of tea and a home-made muffing (with home-made jam, yum). They have recently completely refurbished the former chapel, which now forms the accommodation, in a manner which is a mix of modern and tasteful whilst staying true to the historic style of the old chapel. The rooms are very tastefully refurbished, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Our room had plenty of space for clothes, a large shower, flat-screen tv, really comfortable king-size bed, with a kettle etc. We slept very well as it is located in a very quiet village with almost no traffic. Little touches which makes this B&B so special are things like a little first aid kit in the bedside drawer and completely freshly-cooked breakfast (with locally sourced ingredients - delicious) right down to Heather phoning to book us a table for dinner in the evening. There are 2 cats as well (very friendly at breakfast time!) which we were happy to make a fuss of, but if you don't like cats, that may be an issue. All in all, an absolutely superb B&B which I would thoroughly recommend.
