Jo and David could not have been better hosts but, try as they might, the older part of the 200+ year old house was always going to take some getting used to. The house is well located and easy to find, and the cooked to order breakfast was all that you could want. We had a room of small to average size (with a reasonably sized bathroom), but nothing in them was square or plumb....you either like that or you don't...we didn't. Everything else was great and, even though we gave it a "very good", that's really because TA doesn't have a "good" rating. It was certainly better than average.
