My husband and I stayed here at begining of June for 2 nights with our 15mth old daughter. The staff were lovely, very welcoming and considerate of our daughters needs. When I first made the booking and asked for a travel cot they advised that they didnt have one, but would buy one.. which they did.. They didnt have bedding for the cot, however, they gave me a flat sheet and fortunately I had brought a baby gro bag with me. The kitchen also made up some homemade baby food for me every day and nothing was ever a bother!
The B&B is above a lovely pub. I thought that maybe it would be noisey as we had room 2 which was directly above the bar, but it wasnt at all. The rooms are beautifully finished, exceptionally clean and the bed was super comfortable with lovely crisp bed linen!!! The housekeepers were super hospitable. The only downside was that the rooms were small and they didnt have room for wardrobes - (they had a hanging rail instead), so it did become cluttered with our stuff very quickly! The rooms were also very warm, but they did have fans in the room..
The cooked breakfasts were delicious and we ate in the restaurant one night. The menu selection was great, all freshly cooked to order and very reasonably priced. There is a big beer garden to back with tree house, swings and slide for kids etc..
The village is very quiet and pretty with 2 duck ponds and lots of ducks and ducklings - very cute!!! There is only one shop in the village with basic provisions.... locals line up every morning at opening time for papers!
Whilst rooms are on small side, I would definately recommend as overall service far outweighed the room size.
