Despite some poor weather, our stay was very enjoyable, and James' cooking was excellent, just a shame he is not around all the time, so it is worth checking to see if there is an evening meal available on the nights you are booking for, and if so do try his cooking rather than eating out, and Tisha makes a mean breakfast, especially the meat skillet.
The place is very quirky, with loads of 50 and 60's memorabilia, collected by John, one of the owners, most working, and the use of the two large communal rooms enhance the enjoyment. Far more interesting than staying at your typical B&B/small hotel.
We had 5 very enjoyable nights stay, and we will certainly be trying to fit in another visit, possibly in the fall which will be spectacular, on one of our future trips from the UK.
