A converted Edwardian house set back from the main road, the first thing that sets this apart from the run of the mill B&B's are it's proprietors, Hedley and Judy, who had already charmed me over the phone.
We were greeted by the friendly Hedley at the door and were struck by how immaculate everything was- my wife loved the original Edwardian features that had been lovingly maintained- .and were shown to our room.
The room itself was spacious with plenty of room for our things, the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in and the softest bed linen. The bathroom was ideal, with a simple-to-use modern power shower and lots of space for toiletries and like everything else, immaculate.
Then, after our evening's entertainment, we woke thoroughly refreshed to a fantastic cooked breakfast, fruit and toast and talked with both Hedley and Judy, we were almost made to feel like one of the family.
The nicest surprise about the whole thing was the price- £60 per night. I've stayed in far worse that cost £20-£30 a night more and there is no wonder that you have to book early for vacancies. Thank you Hedley and Judy, you really helped us relax!
