Stayed here for 2 nights, which I think is long enough (in the bed & breakfast rooms), with my wife and children, 13 and 6. Very quiet location at the end of a long track.
We had a family room, which comprised of a double bed (with a single bed in the corner) plus a twin room. Both rooms were large and had ensuite, with the rooms tastefully decorated. They also had a nice collection of books to read.
Jon and Sally went out of their way to make us feel welcome as if we were the only guests - not something you would normally find at a B&B. Jon made cooked breakfast for us while Sally went out to pick fresh raspberries to have with our yoghurt!
On the morning of day 2, Jon drove us down the road to a nearby farm to view the milking of the cows and also to see the new calves. We also bought fresh eggs from there - we went off with the farmers wife to collect eggs from the chicken barn.
Abbey Farm has a beautiful walled garden which was in full bloom - tended to by Sally. I'm sure the (very friendly) border collie dog - Flo was worn out with the fetching of balls and sticks thrown by my son! He didn't want to go anywhere except to play with Flo all the time.
A few pubs around in a couple of miles radius, easier to find with the SatNav.
I highly recommend this place and will definitely be booking again.
