What a great B&B! Lovely room, with lots of important extras like large bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower/bath gel, not those horrible sachets you can never open! Excellent breakfast served by lovely girls who were very polite and obliging. The whole place is decorated in the English traditional style and is very comfortsble. We stayed there while visiting relatives...

This is our second visit and again we were blown away! We were warmly welcomed and we love 'our' little family room, cosy and warm and with a utility room down the hall way with jugs and fresh milk which I personally love.
