Our party of 3 was met at the car when we pulled up by our charming host John. Not being used to such a courteous greeting, to my shame, I was initially put off by John's appearance outside, mistakenly thinking there may have been a problem with our booking and he was about to tell us to turn around and find alternative accommodation. Thankfully that wasn't the case, and after the initial awkwardness we were settled nicely into our rooms. The rooms were spacious, clean and basic, with an overall impression of it being not only a B&B but very much a family home as well. The communal breakfast table was a welcome change in this often impersonal world and John was keen to engage in pleasant conversation and was very informative of local and wider attractions. He happily accommodated a special breakfast request not on the menu which I was very grateful for and generally provided us with a memorable and enjoyable stay. The only negative I have to offer is the property was a little difficult for us to find based on the map and conflicting road signs, however it may very well have come down to our navigation skills! Overall I would highly recommend this B&B.
