Arrived and we were greeted at the door, which made us feel very welcome, which was nice :) Big car park, plenty of space and its all gravelled.
Our room is the same as the photos and previously described in other reviews so wont clog up the review repeating information, but I agree lovely rooms, so clean and the bed? Forget about it- its like sleeping on a cloud! Better than some of the 5 star hotels I have visited.
Breakfast was lovely, I had cooked breakfast as did my partner the first morning. the second Morning I had a cooked breakfast again but it was even nicer, they gave me different sausages- Big meaty, ones filled with lovely herbs, wish I could of had the rest. Should note that our eggs came from thier hens, and as youd expect they were lovely, definately superior to those you buy! There is also toast, white and seeded, yoghurts, juices, and cereal! Lots of side things as well, Jam, Honey, Cheese, Fruit etc looks like a roman banquet
Phil and Kath are great hosts, eager to help and very friendly- they even gave us keys so we could come back whenever we liked, as long as we were quiet and locked the door!! Phil is a right character, in a good way ofcourse!
Lovely scenery, and the track isn't as bad as people make out, we have a one litre skoda and we managed fine!
The gardens are perfect, after passing a couple of seating areas with tables the garden opens out ontop of the hill and is surrounded by forest, If you like birds try and get the room facing the garden and keep your eyes peeled, its like a RSPB reserve with all the feeders!
All in all, 10/10 its really changed my opinion of B and Bs as previously I like to just use hotels, but we took a gamble as it looked right up our street (we love animals and scenery) and I really want to go back! It's like staying at your parents after they have renovated thier house, and are in a really good mood! Only stayed 2 days and I actually miss it =(
