My mother, toddler and I stayed at this B&B in August for 3nights in the the snug and as regular B&B fans we were looking forward to our visit.
The actual B&B was pleasantly furnished to a comfortable standard and spotlesslessly clean. The hosts tried their best to be accommodating where they could (sourcing beef sausages and peanut butter for us) but it was made clear that they are not used to having little ones around. There should have been some warning bells ringing when it was suggested when I went to book that we should stay in the snug (the additional part of the house) so that if the little one cries in the night he doesnt wake up the other guests!
Once in the B&B My 22 month old, who is well behaved, felt unsettled when he saw so many unfamiliar faces around a dinning table at breakfast, so he cried momentarily when he got in the high chair - rather then the reasurrance that every parent craves when their child is not conforming to adult norms, comments were made on following mornings such as 'oh here he comes', and when he was singing in his highchair (when no one else was in the room) 'you have a rather loud voice', which all served to make us feel rather uncomfortable.
The breakfasts were fine but not outstanding - home made bread is made with a bread machine, scrambled eggs a bit overcooked and not seasoned. Overall my mother, son and I had a nice holiday but probably would have felt more comfortable if we had stayed elsewhere.
