We stayed here for one night after reading the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. This place is an eclectic mix styles which may not suit everyone! We stayed in a lovely room with an old-fashioned feel (it even had a painted ceiling!) but the owners are very welcoming and friendly (Lawrence if a fellow Brit).
You can make your own tea and coffee in the lounge area downstairs. There is also a small tray with drinks such as port, sherry or whisky for an after-dinner drink (all free). Lawrence also made fresh chocolate chip cookies which he left out for guests in the lounge (very yummy!).
Our room was large with an en suite bathroom (shower), large wardrobe but no tv. It also has an air conditioning/heating unit. It is located centrally in Bethel and a short walking distance from the restaurants. There is enough parking space although it is tight when the B&B is full. There is a supermarket directly across the road.
My wife didn't sleep too well as she heard what she called 'ghost trains' but what she actually meant was that she heard the trains tooting their horns at 2am as the train tracks are not far from the B&B and echoed around the town. Spooky!
