We enjoyed our 2 night stay in Babbling Brook room 6 (2nd floor). Highlights were the cleanliness of the room and guesthouse itself, the friendly and welcoming attitude of the owners Paul and Angela, and the substantial breakfast. Also there is no parking available, you have to find space on the street which can be difficult.
Some things that might annoy some (but we weren't bothered by) were the size of the room and ensuite (both small and shower not very powerful), the noise outside as it is next to a main road (on the first night we were woken by a drunken yob shouting on his way home), the fact that they only accept cash not cards, and the blinds being quite thin so light sleepers might be woken by that. Like I say, this did not bother us hugely and we would definitely stay there again. It is perfect for walkers, especially as the breakfast is good and sets you up for the day.
A tip if you're thinking of booking- you can get cheaper rates by phoning them directly (number on website or google it). We booked through laterooms but found out we could have got a cheaper deal.
