It felt like home. A warm and happy atmosphere - and that was just the house! The owners, William and Simon are effortlessly welcoming and have made sure that the B & B works at every level for guests. They were quite happy to let us arrive early, and leave late the following day for instance. The large bedroom we stayed in was spotless, with the decoration in keeping with the age of the house. The bed was SO comfortable, we could have been at home. The standards here are very high, with lots of wooden coat hangers, bottled water, and top quality soft furnishings. The towels were thick and fluffy and I actually found the bath towel I used a bit heavy to handle!
Breakfast was un-rushed, with Sunday papers on hand. I am not a breakfast person,and so was quite happy with the (delicious) goats yoghurt and tea, but others were happily tucking into beautifully cooked -to-order breakfasts.
The value-for-money here is quite extraordinary and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. If you are in the area, this is the place to stay.
