We ( myself and my wife ) didn't arrive here till 10-30pm. We were greeted by 'Annie' who had waited around as she knew we would be arriving late. We were shown to room 7 on the 1st floor. A small but cosy double room with en suite shower. The bed was comfortable and must say I really slept well.... More

Annie, the landlady, was courtesy itself and even offered us the choice of two rooms. :The room we chose, room 1, was spotlessly clean and very cosy with... More
