I know that reviews are very subjective, so, this is my take on this B & B.
In a lovely location, this old farm may once have seen better days, it now seems very dated with rather a slapdash approach to the every day maintenance. Our room had a very average bathroom with a toilet that didn't flush properly and a cupboard under the sink which was still full and overflowing with the previous occupants rubbish. In order to make a cup of coffee in the morning it was necessary to kneel on the floor to plug in and use the kettle and there were no spoons to stir the cups, only plastic stirrers.
The bed was extremely uncomfortable and did not enable a good nights sleep.
We had taken the last available room which happened to be the family room with a little extra room with a bunk bed for children, I suppose it was fair but it seemed a bit off to have to pay the extra that this room costs, even though we didn't use the extra facility.
The room we had was at the end of the corridor on the first floor and necessitated ducking under some low beams, which we were warned about, and made the approach very attractive. What was of more concern were the stairs/steps down to the ground, straight into the courtyard, these were in my view dangerous, especially for someone with any disability of walking or sight, and there was no warning in the particulars. The stairs are extremely narrow and very steep ( I would estimate a 6 or 7 inch tread on a 45 degree rise) very difficult with cases especially as they are also very narrow.
Breakfast was very average, without the traditional ham or cheese, just bread, croissant and juice with yoghurt, all of which is adequate but not what you might expect to get for the high price paid for the room.
This is not a B & B that we would recommend.
