Keith, Liz and Kelly made us feel very welcome indeed! Fabulous hosts, thank you guys!
Our room (room 2) was comfortable enough, although the mattress needs replacing. This didn't stop us sleeping for the two nights we stayed however.
The view from the bedroom window was a sight to behold: just glorious and it was lovely seeing the local sheep roaming free.
Television (we were there on the night of the opening ceremony of the Olympics) was a non-starter. Still analogue, not yet digital, we couldn't get the wretched thing to work and whilst we hadn't come away to watch tele, it would have been good if it worked for the occasional programme during the evening. Not the owners' fault as any tv would have struggled to get a signal.
If you want to keep in touch with email, social networking or even to send and receive text messages on your phone, forget it, particularly if you're with O2. We could never get a signal and the wireless connection was decidedly dodgy.
Breakfasts were good though and the views from the dining room were glorious.
The shower in the ensuite is not good: water temperature control is either freezing or boiling and the shower head has a life of its own! The floor was soaked on both occasions my husband or I had used it. So be warned.
I'd stay again definitely, but if I was in Room 2 again I'd have baths and not showers.
