We arrived on Monday after booking a couple of weeks before.
Kate met us upon our arrival, and was very welcoming. We had booked one room, but as this was on the small side, and not at all like it looks online, she did offer a larger family room, as it was available, and was a much better size.
The building is old and quaint,and there are areas, as in all old places that need attention.
Unfortunately after being shown through the garden to where the chickens reside, we realised the garden was not one for spending much time in, as the grass wasn't cut and we did see one of her sweet dogs, doing its business amongst the tall grass, which was a little off putting.
Unfortunatley we had to cut our stay very short, as my husband was taken ill, and wanted to get back home,so we were not able to sample Katies' cooked breakfast although she did pack us off with a little gift which was very thoughtful and some eggs from her chickens which were very tasty indeed! (She has a no refund policy)
A very firiendly and hospitable lady, although if I may make one criticsm, we found her to reveal a little too much information about her personal life when we just asked a general question.
