We booked this B&B for a night before travelling to Turkey at 7.30 the following morning. We were 3 adults, 2 children and a small dog! We booked the family room and a single room and paid a small additional charge for bringing the dog. I contacted the B&B prior to booking to check whether we could have breakfast that early in the morning and the room arrangements as we didn't want my mum to be staying too far from the family room. They replied quickly and said breakfast was self service and available at any time.
We arrived later than expected at 9pm and it was starting to get a little dark, but the directions to the property were good and it is very close to the main road, but appears quite rural in its outlook. We were easily able to park and were greeted by 2 Labradors who were very keen to meet our dog and wanted me to throw the rather moist tennis ball, being a doggy person, I happily obliged!
We were greeted at the door very warmly and told that although we had booked a single room, she had put mum into the double room next to ours so she was nearer to us. The rooms were lovely!!! The family suite consisted of a separate bathroom with a bath and very large shower over; a king-sized bed in a room and there was a small staircase leading up to the attic where there were 3 single beds.. it was gorgeous, the children (and the dog) loved it. The whole area was separated from the other rooms by a large door so they were free to walk around our whole suite without worry. Mums room was a small but adequate double with ensuite shower room.
There were tea and coffee making facilities in each room, although our kettle was missing, lovely towels and the bed linen was lovely. The beds were very comfortable too.
We were shown the breakfast facilities ready for the morning: there is a very large kitchen containing toast making section with lovely granary or white bread; hot drink making facilities and a fridge with yoghurts, fresh fruit, juices and milk/butter, in the dining room there was a large array of cereals and jams, marmalades, chocolate spreads, peanut butter, marmite (anything you could want to put on a piece of toast!).
They do serve drinks so we sat on the very large patio and had a drink before bed, while our dog played with the labradors in the very large garden!
The rooms were very nice and we were pleased with the stay and the breakfast - Self service was ideal for our needs.
The only negatives were:
It was in a semi-rural location and the farmers nearby had obviously sprayed the fields recently, the smell was a little horrid, but not a problem if, like us, you are used to being in the country!
They had recently cut the large lawns, but the grass hadn't been collected, so we were walking everywhere with clumps of cut grass on our shoes - again not too much of a problem, but we walked around without shoes to avoid messing up the carpets!
We would happily return if we needed accommodation in the area and will be recommending to all our friends that need to stay before flying from Bristol.
