After a lengthy, tiring but enjoyable journey I really hoped and needed to quickly check in and chill out in my pre booked room...I was greeted by proprietor Hazel who immediately made me welcome and provided me with all the important guesthouse details including where to park and more importantly; breakfast choice /timetable!
My lovely & clean, well fitted room (No 1) overlooks a tranquil park area /cricket pitch. Leading from the foyer there is a convenient veranda leading to a comfortable conservatory where folks can relax and look over the cricket ground towards the steam railway.
I ventured out into the guesthouse foyer to be met by Hazel`s partner Mick, he patiently & kindly helped me sort out with a few time sensitive & important items.
The location of the guesthouse is straightforward to find. It ensures a quiet stay and after my comfortable nights sleep I anticipated a hearty breakfast.
Mick and Hazel have their busy breakfast /dining room service very well organised and upon taking my seat Hazel then confirmed my pre ordered `full English` was on its way!
No sooner had I finished my fruit juice and cereals then it was Mick who appeared with coffee & my `full English` ......a perfect start to a long day.
After my two nights stay I was surprised how `sad` I felt checking out and leaving the Ashleigh.......wish I was staying for at least a week!...trouble is I would have put on a Stone!
