We stayed here for two nights in mid March and wished we could have stayed longer. Helen made us very welcome with her trademark tea and cakes. Like many of her previous guests, we took the short walk down to the lakeside. It was so peaceful with only the slight buzz of traffic from the far side of the lake.
Our room was pleasantly furnished with a well appointed bathroom and we slept soundly in the comfortable bed. Breakfast was served downstairs with tasty bacon and fresh free range eggs from Helen's chickens. This was preceded by a freshly prepared fruit salad and a good selection of cereals
The recommendations for our evening meals were 'spot on' and we had a most enjoyable break.
To anyone reading this review, you are soon going to have to book well ahead, as news of Helen's B&B is spreading far and wide and judging by our experience, cannot fail to be a popular choice.
We took a tray of eggs home for Easter and our visiting 3 sons had one or two eggs each every morning over the bank holiday. Needless to say they didn't last v.long - they were delicious! Thank you Helen for a wonderful stay. Hope to be back soon.
