This was our second stay here and it was superb. The rooms and bathrooms have been completely re-furnished to a very high standard. The bedrooms are simply furnished with mainly antique furniture with a simple colour scheme of dark brown furniture with white carpet, bed, towels, etc. and it looks terrific. Plus no TV/DVD to clutter up the room. The bathrooms are also superb and the level of quality is better than pretty much any hotel I've ever stayed in.
Erica's food was as first-rate as ever, with eggs from the chickens outside and some of the veg being from the garden. Generous portions of healthy, top quality food served with real care and attention. Make no mistake - this is better than most restaurants.
We stayed in the Garden Bedroom at £85 a night including a faultless (black pudding available!) cooked breakfast. That is a bargain for a place like this.
Gary and Erica made us feel so at home it took us all of an hour to totally wind down. This is how all B+Bs should be run. Highly recommended.
