Having stayed one night here about 3 years ago, we had no qualms in booking for a 3 day break at at James house nice more. Barry, the owner, is the most welcoming of hosts and nothing is too much trouble. His sole purpose in life seems to be to ensure all his guests feel welcome and at home and, with his wonderful staff, keeps a very clean B&B. Which has everything one needs for a stay. With all his wonderful antiquities, it is like stepping back in time. Barry is also a very intelligent, informed host who loves to chat and can easily converse on any subject. We had some most enjoyable discussions. He seems to have led a most interesting life. All this adds up to a very homely, enjoyable stay and we would not hesitate to book again. Thank you Barry and all your staff.
