My boyfriend and I stayed at Boat Farm B&B for 3 nights over New Year.
Prior to arrival I'd spoken with the owner, Barbara, a few times over email and she was extremely helpful, suggesting restaurants and pubs for our evening meals and even sent me sample menus and telephone numbers.
When we arrived Barbara came out to greet us and offered to help with our bags. She showed us to our room and then provided a pot of tea and cakes for us! This was such a lovely touch.
Our room and bathroom were both fantastic, spacious, spotlessly clean; everything looked brand new with really good quality fittings (under floor heating!). Lots of little extras like bottles of water everyday, lots of hangers in the wardrobe, a radio, cotton wool and spare toiletries, etc.
The breakfasts were fantastic and of excellent quality; nothing was too much trouble and there was lots of choice, the first day we didn’t need lunch! We ate in a lovely room (one of 2) with a telly and a wood burner where we could sit in the evening with a bottle of wine and the cakes Barbara left for us each day.
Bellingham itself wasn’t the best village we’ve visited but there are lots of surrounding areas to visit and it’s fine for a break away from the city.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish Barbara all the best!
