We arrived at the b&b around 11pm on Friday night and the owner greeted us at the door, and showed us to our quadruple suite straight away. There was four of us and we were off for a girly weekend to Budapest the next morning. The owner Mike asked us if we would like a full English breakfast in the morning and asked us what time would suit us. He was very accommodating and attentive. The beds were extremely comfortable, the whole house was gorgeous and extremely clean. The next morning we went downstairs to the kitchen and mike greeted us and said as it was a nice day, he had set up a table in the garden for us to have a breakfast. That was a great experience in itself. We had fresh fruit with yoghurt, followed by a full English breakfast which was cooked to perfection and finally a warm croissant fresh from the oven. He had also organised a taxi for us to go to the airport which ideally is only 10 minutes away and my friend who had driven us to the b&b from sheffield was able to leave her car there for the whole weekend and it was only £5 a day which we felt was very reasonable. All in all, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend this place to everybody.
