I am not sure the owners have agreed between themselves whether they want to operate a B&B. One is enthusiastic and one possibly resents anyone staying in the house. So, with this conflict, why they have anybody staying in their charming but quirky house is a mystery.
The house is hard to find but is so close to the A2 that tranquillity is not part of their menu, should you want a quite walk in the country. I have seen the promotional photo of the house and cannot recognise it from the place we stayed in.
You get what they want you to have. Never put your cup on any surface that does not have a coaster, and accept that covers for sugar from the 1950's are mandatory. For breakfast you get one sausage, one sliced mushroom, one slice of bacon, a microwaved tomato, and a fried egg. There is no choice except they do not do black pudding and never do baked beans.
We had a ball and loved the stay. The bedrooms and the ambience were great. Just not what we expected. Oh, never ask for scrambled eggs!
