After reading reviews on here we chose this place and staying in Rosie, the gypsie caravan for a special occasion. The reviews were all glowing that we read but we left disappointed with the level of service and price we paid.
We arrived and was met by a nice lady who explained the family was away. She showed us to where we were staying. Rosie is lovely and very comfortable. When we left that evening for a meal we realised we had no key for Rosie or the B&B so had to leave through the families garden. Breakfast was very nice though we had brown bread which my husband doesn't like so we request white bread for the next day. We also would have liked a pot of tea!
We then didn't see anyone until 8pm the following evening when we had to ask for more tea bags as no one had restocked and we were desperate for a cup if tea. It turned out the owners were on holiday and they got back it that time hence why we had seen no one. Lovely breakfast next day but still brown bread, she came out half way through and offered us white but a but late - and still no pot if tea.
The couple running the place were lovely and polite and can't fault there manner but I felt that after the problem we had we should have been offered a reduced rate. If it had been a hotel we would have complained like mad but a bit difficult in someone's house.
