Staying here is as much like visiting distant relatives as it is staying in a B&B. The bedrooms are sizeable and have the usual facilities and great beds. What makes them different is that there is family stuff around (such as old posters put behind the beds and sports medals hanging from the ceiling). There is an eclectic collection of books lying about (so it feels a bit bookshop as well). The breakfasts are taken in the family kitchen and are very tasty. There are two aspects which I think give a flavour of the place. First, you must learn to duck under the beams (or bang your head). Second, there is a kettle etc in the room, but if you want milk then (rather than little packets of plastic milk) Carmel will get you some fresh milk from the kitchen. How civilised, warm and welcoming.
