I'm puzzled by the fact that we haven't had more people reviewing this b&b. May be because it's quite small but still, so nice!
My 10yo son and I stayed there for 3 nights and we loved it. We had the attic room although we had been warned before hand that the room has it's all bathroom but it wasn't ensuite like the other rooms. We thought it'd be good fun though, especially since we live in a rather boring new built house. We had it all: the exposed beams, the very low ceiling, the wacky steps leading up to the room and a view of the sky. The room was of a very good size, plenty of drawers etc and drink making facilities and it was immaculate - as was the bathroom (a pretty large bathroom too!).
Breakfast was great and huge portions to the point that we couldn't finish the 'reduced' version! Plenty of tea / coffee on the table, toast, fresh fruit and cereals. Don't expect it all to be organic / free range or the coffee to be up to Italian standards BUT this is a formidable b&b, run by a lovely and very hard-working couple and make it their mission to ensure that you feel at home!
Also, the b&b is very well located, within a short walking distance to the local pubs & shops and in the mini-retail park you will find an excellent bakery selling bread (duh!), yummy cakes (try the pear & rosemary, hmm...!), cheeses and they serve excellent coffee. Will's cafe is also supposed to be very good and you can go to the local brewery to have a drink. Oh, and there are quite a few furniture shops plus the ever so important bike hire shop! And just to wrap up the location bit: all of the above and the b&b are within walking distance to the train station.
Anyway, I've been given some vouchers for the cookery school so I will definitely be returning and no doubt I will be staying at Li'le Hullets again!
Thank you ever so much Anne & Tony for making our stay so pleasant!!!
