This was our very first B&B experience, and Liz couldn't have been a better host - very welcoming despite our slightly early arrival. Attentive but relaxed, she provided helpful information about the area, as well as delicious home-made jams and jellies! It was just a shame we didn't have the weather to enjoy the ducks' company - although the chickens' eggs formed part of a delicious breakfast.
We came to the area by train, and Fingle Bridge is only a few minutes' stroll from Wool station past a lovely pub and bakery, and a well-stocked Spar for food etc (crockery, fridge and microwave are provided in your room in case you want to cook for yourself).
We were in the family bedroom, which was very comfortable and had a good Freeview TV.
Overall, a very positive experience at a good price. Thanks Liz! Jon and Sophie.
