My friends and I had just walked up, muddy and tired after a 14 mile hike with our 15-20kg rucksacks desperate not to camp in our wet tents and were absolutely delighted with the welcome Peter and Geraldine gave us.
Peter was also helpful in trying to find a place for our 2 extra group members to stay as they did not have enough room for everyone.
When we got in, we were shown the guest lounge with 'help yourself' homemade drop scones, flapjacks and an assortment of teas, hot chocolate and coffee (which we took full advantage of!)
Upstairs our rooms were large with bay windows and the bed was very comfortable with en suite bathroom featuring a large powerful shower. The lemongrass and ginger shower gel and shampoo was bliss! And we welcomed more of Geraldine's homemade goods; tablet - yum!
As I mentioned before, there was a few of us and my 3 friends stayed in the room opposite with Peter telling us they'll put in an extra bed. Off we went to dinner expecting to find a compact fold out sleepover type of bed, but no, they managed to carry a full sized bed upstairs for my friend to sleep in for one night! We were pretty impressed.
Breakfast was delicious and we had many choices for cooked breakfast, ranging from Full English, Salmon and scrambled eggs, various types of omelette, brie & bacon on ciabatta etc. As well as mixed fruit, fresh juice, teas, coffee, pancakes, porridge, yoghurts....fantastic start to our next day of walking!
Geraldine is even happy to give out her tablet recipe which will be useful for future gorging!
Overall the best B&B my partner and I have ever come across, we will be happy to visit again with less baggage!
