We were, frankly, dreading the prospect of staying in a B&B in a seaside town in England in winter... Staying in someone else's house, being subjected to a plethora of rules, a lumpy bed, questionable decor and breakfast straight out of the 70s...
Thank goodness for this place; the perfect antidote to these fears. Off-street parking. Our own, separate entrance to a fresh, brand-spankingly-newly-done room, a super-comfortable bed, television with freeview, power shower, organic Clipper tea and biscuits (staved off two hangovers) and a delicious, lovingly prepared breakfast served when we wanted it (on a snazzy trolley - the only nod to the 70s and perhaps Jacqui's previous incarnation with BA?).
Good work Jacqui. Your discrete, warm presence was very welcome. And based on our stay with you, we might even stay at another B&B sometime (and definitely with you if we find ourselves back in Lyme).
