Just returned from a most enjoyable week-end at The Victorian Bed and Breakfast. Our Host, Mr Harold Brown, was such a delight to meet and a fountain of knowledge. Made us feel at home straight away. We both loved the feel of the house. Victorian throughout and so many delightful artefacts in every nook and cranny. It has obviously taken Harold a lifetime to gather together such treasures. If I were forced to find any negatives, then I would have to say that we both would have loved a hospitality tray in the bedroom. I fully understand that it might not be "in keeping" to have a kettle on show, but perhaps it could be hidden away in a cupboard maybe? Obviously, a television wasn't to be seen either, so I thanked my lucky stars that I had taped the first episode of the new "Downton" series! We did enjoy the welcoming tea and home made Victoria Sponge (with fresh cream and strawberries!) served to guests around 4.30 to 5.30 every day. We were able to make friends and even arranged to go out later that evening to dinner together. A real bonus and not something that would be likely to happen in a Premier Inn! Altogether a lovely experience and one that we hope to repeat as soon as possible.
