We had received directions from the owner ahead of coming but it is a very small place and it was dark. I saw a sign that said whitnage cottage and knocked. A friendly old man answered the door and informed me the bnb was actually next door! I apologised and as we were coming round the corner we were greeted by the bnb owner. " did you not read your directions? If you did you would have read it was here and that parking was down here." It was very dark and I explained I had knocked at whitnage cottage. "No that's little whitnage".
He then hurriedly showed me to my room which was beautiful. We asked about where to eat locally and he recommended a couple of places but then said he hadn't eaten there.
The shower in the bathroom was a hand held one and it was very difficult to get the temperature right. The bath although lovely and deep took a long time to fill up.
We were the only guests eating breakfast and we were greeted politely in the morning but again there was this sense of hurry, that we were a bit of a nuisance. He had to pick his kids up, he had to clean rooms.
I enjoyed the breakfast and there was plenty of choice on cereal and tinned fruit and yogurts. Cooked was delicious. However my partner didn't think it was worth £7.95.
The lady was lovely and warm on approach but unfortunately the man seemed irritated by our presence and appeared to us that he had much more important things to be doing than hosting us.
Lovely setting, beautiful room with comfy bed but attitude could do with a little adjustment from male owner.
