Stayed here for 4 nights. We were welcomed by Sarah and Frazer (who very kindly lugged our cases up the stairs for us) and shown to Room 5. Lovely, spacious twin room, with 2 very good-sized single beds in. Plenty of storage - wardrobe with coat hangers, lots of drawers. Lovely clean shower room with toiletries provided. Breakfasts were superb... More
