I have stayed in many B&Bs over the years but this one is the best find yet, on arrival we were met by Karen who was extremely friendly and could not have been more helpful in getting us to the parking area and guiding us in. We met the very cute puppy on arrival and were shown to a very nice double room with outstanding en-suite, the room has recently been completely refurbished and is both fashionable and functional. This mix is very difficult to achieve, the fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality combined with quirky and excellent quality furniture. Tea and coffee facilities are excellent with a brand new hairdryer in the room.
The en-suite, like the room, was impeccably clean and had high quality shampoo, soaps and shower gel with a large two point overhead and hand shower at a very good power level. The bed was VERY comfortable with high quality bedding and we enjoyed an outstanding night sleep, the lounge are made available to all guests is beautifully decorated and comfortable. This room includes a free coffee machine with an array of PODs to suit any taste, fresh milk was made available instantly.
The breakfast was truly a treat, local fruit salad and locally made yogurt as well as a range of cereals and granola also available. This was followed with an all locally sourced full English breakfast which was beautiful, for those meat eaters out there a must! To top this off croissants and jams along with any tea you could think of and top quality coffees.
Above all of this was the friendly approach of Karen and Alan, our breakfast turned into a two hour conversation about music, sport, shoes and all the world has to offer. My title says it all, it was like visiting old friends on this our first visit so I already look forward to returning.
Local knowledge of restaurants and pubs was excellent and from my next review you will see very successful.
