This is the best illustration of the contrast between an English B&B and a hotel.
You are part of a family’s home; warm, comfortable and ‘homely’ - without the starchy perfection of a hotel.
You are cared for by one couple who are very concerned to be hospitable - without the polite distance of various hotel staff who are concerned to be ‘professional’.
You feel at home - we loved the newly laid eggs, the freedom to come and go, microwave our evening meals, then enjoy the evening in front of a wood-burning stove in the sitting room… outside the constraints of a hotel regime.
(Yes it was winter, so we didn’t try out the tennis court or swimming pool.)
