Contrary to other reviews I've read for this B & B I found the service completely unsatisfactory; despite having booked two double rooms some weeks in advance; when we arrived (having driven down from Newcastle) only one room was available due to existing guests extending their stay by a few days-clearly profit motive overrides advance bookings here. John suggested that one couple stay in Eynesford, about 7 miles away, but as we were all coming down to attend a funeral we wished to be together as a group & this was clearly unacceptable, so with some encouragement John phoned round & eventually found us somewhere else.
Perhaps the food is good & the beds comfortable but I feel that the ethics leave something to be desired, so 'nil points' for this one!
