Unfortunately the two disabled rooms on the ground floor were fully booked some time in advance but Lynda showed us the facilities and they were excellent, particularly in the bathrooms where a lot of thought has gone into them. Lynda and John also provide a wheelchair for the use of guests so it saves trying to get one out of the car. There are 2 designated disabled spaces in the car park with a ramp to the front door. Our room on the first floor was very clean with ample drawer and storage space, a mini chiller in the room for water with a bottle already in situ. The bathroom was well appointed and, although small, it could take two adults comfortably. The mirror was at a height so that ladies can see into it and was well lit. Best of all a heated towel rail and large fluffy towels that you could completely wrap yourself in.There was a super hairdryer in the drawer, iron and ironing board in the wardrobe. Although we could see onto the road, it was not noisy at night and we slept very well. Breakfast was a joy with fresh strawberries and blueberries, fruit salad, grapefruit segments and prunes with a choice of three fruit drinks as well as cereals, yoghurts and baby bel cheeses. It is just Lynda and John who cook the breakfasts and they could not be faulted with so much choice using local produce where possible. Lynda also provides an evening 3 course meal at a cost of £18.95 which included home made soup, breaded brie, melon with parma ham, then chicken, lamb shanks, pork chops, chicken, salmon fillets and a vegetarian option + desserts + tea/coffee and as they are not licensed you can bring you own wine,. We did not try the meal but other guests said it was lovely. On the second morning, we were overrun by 6 Swedish guests who grabbed all the fruit at breakfast early but Lynda had some more made up to compensate.
