This has got to be one of the nicest B and Bs I've stayed at. It's an old house which has been beautifully restored, with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The bedrooms were spotlessly clean with plenty of towels and toiletries. For breakfast, as well as the traditional fry up, there was a huge selection of fresh fruit, yogurt and serials.
Best of all were the hosts, Ann and Denis, who made our stay very special, particularly putting up with my 80 year old Dad's sense of humour.
If you stay here you will need a car to get around, there are a couple of pubs for evening meals, but you'd probably want to drive to them. The entrance to the drive way is narrow and a difficult left hand turn to negotiate when coming out onto the main road.
