Stayed here for one night recently. Received a warm welcome from Robin the owner, who invited us to a cup of tea and homemade cake, plus a chat, in the courtyard. Lovely place to sit for a while enjoying a drink or read a book. Room was very pleasant if a bit tight due to it's location within the roof space of the building. In the room were homemade flapjacks and a small decanter of sherry and of course tea/coffee making facility. Breakfast was great. Prepared by Robin and Pip in their large open plan kitchen diner, while talking to us and other guests. Nice fresh fruit salad and samples of interesting cheeses and cold meats. It was a nice breakfast, and again their company was pleasant and interesting. Pip is an artist and her work is displayed around the house to be viewed.
Very pleasant all round.
