Booked for a night away with my husband. The hosts were welcoming and friendly. Had a lovely pot of tea and homemade biscuits on arrival. Room was fabulous - kingsize bed, powerful shower, lovely smellies to use, complimentary chocolates, wifi access. Fantastic breakfast in the morning - fresh and tasty. Will certainly come back.

Booked late but what a great find. Very friendly and helpful, a lovely room and fabulous breakfast. The wi fi didn't extend to my room but I was able to work in the dining room which was perfect. It offers secure parking and is literally right next to the town centre, so plenty of choice of eateries. All in all... More

Number 5 rates among the best B&Bs we have stayed in. The house itself is lovely, both inside and out. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and wonderfully comfortable. The bed was heavenly, the shower divine and the thick fluffy towels a dream. We also appreciated the extra touches, like tea and coffee facilities and the chocolates on the dressing... More
