I have seen some B&B's, but this one is definitely the one not to go!
Make sure your SatNav is working with post codes as you will have to spent some time finding the location with only address indication.
The room we stayed in was very small -family room!. Parents bed standing next to the wall, so that you would have had to crawl over to the other side.
The bed was literally a plank with a very dusty tired thin mattress. After a long days travel not what you need to have a good nights sleep.
The second bed had tired squeaky springs dating back to the 60s at least. Dusty as well. Every movement was to be noisy.
The floor carpet was dusty and we struggled all night long with dust allergy symptoms.
We were allowed to used the kitchen, which upfront I thought wonderful -
BUT.. the cutlery and plates were not cleaned to the standards I'm used to, so I had to wash everything again. The kettle was dark brown inside, I do not know the color of the water, couldn't see it. The toaster had seen cleaner days, I do hope so. The table we should eat on was sticky - could not be asked to eat on that.
We did not have a good feeling at breakfast the other morning, as we thought that the cleanliness of the main kitchen would be similar. Cups with stains and tea spoons with rest of sugar in were served up. I could not drink the tea as my stomach was revolting.
The furniture looked like auction hall sale out of the late 60s/70s. No feel to it at all.
To end this awkward stay, as I was about to leave and pay, the owner told me that they made a mistake and had debited my account already 10 days before my arrival, although I had booked with booking.com and could have cancelled up to 2 days before arrival date.
They would NOT have told me as I arrived, but waited until billing time.
I would NOT recommend this place, unless you love to stay in a very basic B&B in the woods, in a far far away land.....
