This was my first time at the Far Side. It was very comfortable and I had a single room, which is not easy to find and with an outside entrance. No hauling a suitcase up countless stairs. That was a bonus. I'm not sure about the other rooms but this one had an ensuite.

A great place to stay in the new forest, great views to wake up to! We were welcomed by a very friendly hostess (and Ben the dog) and looked after for our stay with a wealth of local knowledge. A perfect place to stay if you want take walks into the forest.

We just stayed for 1 night in this B&B, but we found it quit comfortable. We had a nice room on the first floor. Beds are ok. Breakfast was tasty and it was nice to have breakfast together with the other guests. Ali is a friendly host.
