I echo all previous comments that Carol (and her family) are very friendly and helpful hosts. The location is excellent - stunning views yet close to main road so easy to find and access. This is a safe, clean and comfortable place to stay.
However, I was looking for something really special for a trip away with my husband, and based on previous reviews I thought I'd found the perfect spot. As it was, my husband wasn't able to join me due to unforeseen circumstances and I'm almost quite glad since this wouldn't have been a romantic getaway. I was in the Blorenge Room, which was spacious. However the windows rattled in the wind so I had to pad them with tissues, the furnishings were uninspired, and I awoke every time one of the other guests came out of their bedroom to use their bathroom across the hall (doors didn't close quietly). The breakfast was fair, and I applaud the use of local ingredients. However, the dining room overlooks the cowshed and with the windows open all I could smell was the unpleasant farm smell. I fully understand this is a working farm and the implications of that, but those smells whilst eating really weren't nice.
In summary, there are a lot of nice things about this B&B but it is fairly average - I have stayed in much better.
