    Vivien was the most fantastic hostess, sharing local info, especially pubs for dinner, and providing the best breakfast in the UK. Beautifully decorated property. Limited off street parking but close alternative.

    A test of a character is how you respond when times are bad, not when times are good. And unfortunately, our stay here proved that the hosts responded badly when guests were in a difficult situation. When we first arrived, Vivienne was a great host...More
