We chose the second story room with a big window overlooking the garden and valley, with the hills beyond. Best view we had in England from a B and B. The bedroom was perfect for two people, with a comfortable queen size bed, small cupboard to hang up our clothes, a tea/coffee tray, two chairs to relax in and an en-suite bathroom with shower and heated towel racks. Wish we had those in the U.S.! Our landlady, Jayne and her mother were wonderful and friendly. We treated ourselves to Jayne's delicious full English breakfast on two mornings which kept us going until late afternoon. If we wanted lighter fare we were provided a variety of fruit, cereal, eggs, bacon and toast combinations to choose from. Since this is a walking area, Jayne had lots of books with nearby walking paths for us to browse through.
Hilllside House is just a five minute walk to a variety of pubs, tearooms and footpaths so we only used the car once during the week we were there. Coming from California that was a treat.
