Stayed recently at Linnett Hill for a couple of nights. Chose it on the basis of the good reviews and it's excellent location and good off-street parking. It immediately passed our three point test - good shower, comfortable bed & super breakfast. These are what you should expect from the higher end b&b's but what lifted Linnett Hill above the average was the great welcome from Andy & Mandy. Really informative hosts who gave us a lot of info re places to eat and walks to do (One must follow the other !!!). They got the balance right in that the they were friendly & available but we're not in your face like some hosts can be. The acid test is Would you return ? In the case of Linnett Hill the answer is most definitely yes.
