We eventually found Willows down a 5 Km ish muddy, cow-poo ridden lane( just after milking). There was no one to meet and greet us on arrival, eventually we found an empty room with a note left on the bed for us .
In this note were instructions about the breakfast arrangements - if you were happy with a continental one then it could be done in-situ, if not, and a more substantial one was wanted (and who doesn't when on holiday?) we were to get in the car and go down the lane again and visit the proprietor's restaurant/bistro,'The Lemon Tree,' where his staff would deal with us for breakfast.
We got the impression the owner was not too bothered with his guests - if there was anything that we wanted for the room we were to contact the room maid (who we never saw).
