“Not a very warm welcome”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2006

My family of 4 (two children 2 and 4 yo) stayed at this B&B recently. The price was 90 pounds for a room with a queen bed and a single bed. Let me begin with the positive points of our stay. The place really is clean, modern, simple and tasteful. Our complaints arise from the character of the owner and the location of the establishment.
First off, we never received a confirmation by mail. There are no details on their web site about when to arrive or meal times...etc. We arrived to drop off our suitcases and ask for meal suggestions and were greeted with a huffing, puffing, " Are you aware that you're not supposed to arrive until 4:30?". Well, no we wouldn't be. We just want to drop off our things and ask about the food in the area. "Well this is MY family time. From 10 to 4:30 that is what we do."
So, that was rude. The hostess did show us to our room and present us with a sheet of paper with a list of local pubs. She asked when we wanted breakfast the following morning and we suggested 9am. She countered with, "How about 8:50 because we go to church and have to get ready". Personally, we were fine with that, but are all people on holiday ready to be up bright and early on a Sunday?
Overall, we felt unwelcomed, which isn't what you want at a B&B, is it? We could have stayed at a hotel if we wanted a tidy room, right off the motorway.
OH YES! The motorway! It is RIGHT OFF (You can hear the constant WHOSH). the A1 south and I wouldn't be suprised to hear of a serious accident occuring here as there is no signposting until you've passed it and you must go from 60mph to 15 in about 100 metres to make the corner into the drive.
PS: Very little FARM envirnment! There were a few birds, but no other animals in sight. That was disappointing for the little ones.

Very nice B&B farm. Very friendly people, comfortable rooms, large sitting room, good English breakfast. They feed the birds during breakfast, so that guests have something to look at when they look through the window during breakfast. But without the birds, the view was fine too. Also good Self Catering possibilities. Very centrally situated at the A1 about half an hour from North London. Also close to Cambridge.
