I received a very warm welcome from this extremely hospitable landlady who offered me a pot of tea and big plate of biscuits on my arrival, showed me to a very well appointed and comfortable room, and provided me with a street map of the local area and suggestd various local attractions to visit. This guesthouse gave really excellent value
