Due to a mishap at the B&B we had already booked, we had to find accommodation in the area only 24 hours before arrival. We booked over the phone with Mike, and this was a very calm and easy process.
On arrival, we were warmly greeted by Angela, and shown straight to our room (the 'Lilac Room'), and which was extremely comfortable with high quality furnishings and lots of attention to detail.
We wanted to go out and eat, and were recommended to try 'The Beacon', which is 15 minutes' walk away. We chose to walk, although Angela even offered to run us there. (It's worth the walk, by the way). We were even offered torches and umbrellas.
We found the bed very comfortable, and the atmosphere very quiet, calm and relaxing - having come straight from a family funeral, we were very grateful for this. The bathroom is very well-equipped, clean and modern.
At breakfast, we were again warmly greeted, and served with the breakfast you'd expect from this quality of B&B - plenty of choice of excellent ingredients, nicely cooked and professionally presented, and with generous quantity.
Overall, the service was genuinely attentive and unobtrusive, and very much in the spirit of what we believe a B&B to be, which is staying in someone's home. This is B&B done exceptionally well.
Any negatives really do come down to personal opinions and nit-picking - the only thing which occurred to us, rather later, was that we hadn't been offered any refreshment on arrival. That said, the welcome was extremely hospitable, and the refreshments in our room were comprehensive anyway. We felt very much at ease and at home throughout our stay.
