There was nobody anywhere in sight when we arrived and I honestly thought we must have been at the wrong house as I missed the sign on the main road with the name of the B and B. There was no cars in the car park and a large broken pot plant holder and a pile of gravel in front of door and it really looked unkept and closed. We found a post it note on door with a phone number, so rang and it went to message bank. We had to go looking for the owner, we visited next door and was told to try the house behind as the mother of the owner lived there. We did this and the mother said she would try and find the host. We went back to house and waited about 5 minutes and then the front door opened and the host let us in. The reception we received from the host was a lot to be desired, we did not find her friendly, helpful or apologetic for having us wait 35 minutes.
The room was lovely, large comfortable with kettle and fridge but the view of the back yard from our room was terrible, there was rubbish and planks of wood all along the pathway and bird poop all over our window. It was a real let down. The breakfast was self serve and OK but I cannot recommend and I would not return.
