We were welcomed by Nigel and he showed us our rooms and explained everything.
He also directed us to some nearby pubs for a good evening meal. The next morning we met his wife Madge and she cooked a delicious breakfast for us.
Both of them are very friendly and welcoming. The place is very nicely done; it used to be a building where the well-to-do girls learned there social skills after school-hours. And it still has that spirit, but with the comforts of today.
