We chose this B&B as we were visiting for a special occasion which demanded something above your average hotel or B&B experience - the reviews promised something a little different and we were not disappointed. The whole place is decorated and furnished incredibly sympathetically to the location whilst at the same time you'll always feel at home. The larger room has a rather spectacular adjacent bathroom of its own, the like of which I've never seen in accommodation at this price before - the rolltop bath is a fantastic centre-piece. The second room with en suite bathroom, whilst much smaller still had the same charm as the rest of the house. Another thing that set it apart from my previous experiences with smaller B&Bs was the substantial breakfast selection - you certainly won't be leaving hungry. This is all provided by hosts who couldn't possibly be more friendly and helpful. If you like the idea of swapping hotel room gadgets and flatscreen TVs for a step back in time that fits in perfectly with its surroundings then you will love this place!
