I booked this at the last minute after seeing a good weather forecast for the weekend, and was very pleased I did.
It was chilly outside when we arrived but the house was warm and cosy. Claire was friendly and engaging.
The house is very traditional with solid wood staircase and fittings, the decor is modern with pleasant light tones making the large rooms light and airy.The bathroom was again large with a fab hot shower, and good quality toiletries.
Later my friend became stuck in his room when an older mortice locked failed, but this was dealt with quietly and promptly - its not often he has strange men climbing through his window!
Breakfast was plentiful with good choices, including vegetarian options. I can recommend the porridge, along with the scambled egg with smoked salmon, portions were more than plentiful and a good start for the day.
The price for the room was low, and this would be good value even with higher prices. I will definitely return.
