The positives for this B&B: Beautiful gardens, both front and back. Full of birds in the early morning feasting on the food provided by the hosts.
Both hosts are friendly to their guests. Bed so comfortable we too did not want to get up. Breakfast cooked to perfection.Quiet location. Large room. Hospitality tray. Central location.
But, room not en-suite and charged £80. Carpets (red) throughout the house, slightly 'shabby chic'. Wall hangings everywhere of either Indian or Tibetan origin. Even our headboard had a drape following the same theme.
Shower (in our not en-suite) ran either cold or very, very hot during each of our showers.
Road outside the B/B is double yellow lines. You can park around the back but that road will fill up as the evening progresses. Communal breakfast table: which may not be a negative for some, but can be a bit of strain first thing in the morning.
