First of all, the positives: Tina is extremely pleasant and we were made to feel welcome. We were also free to come and go as we pleased.
However, for us, the Garden Room was a little disappointing for the price being charged. The room was not as spotless as it could have been - dust on picture frames, corrosion on the bath and a room above us that we were warned might be used by the owner's son, although this didn't happen. As another reviewer has pointed out - there is one front door to the guest room and you do have to walk across the bottom of the stairs to access the en-suite bathroom, which might prove embarrassing if someone else is going in and out of the building.
Breakfast was good, although do be aware that you might need to be prepared to share the large table with other guests if they have chosen to eat at the same time. For us this wasn't a problem. However, I felt that it was a shame to serve our tea in a pot with a big chip in the spout on two of the mornings.
