Hosts were warm and welcoming, even though we had a late arrival (after 9pm). We were shown to our room which had a beautiful view out to sea, further improved by the binoculars supplied in the room! A lovely touch I thought, this turned out to be the norm here, lots of small touches that make it a cut above other B&B's we have used in the area.
The lane is not as tight as some would have you believe, I'd happily take a wagon down the lane as I'm sure many have done when it was a working farm. The Farmhouse itself is set in it's own mature well kept grounds. The room was spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. We both got a peaceful nights rest. Breakfast the following morning is a communal affair, we enjoyed the company and the food.
Downside was booking . com led us to believe the room had a private hot tub/pool and this proved to be communal and open to the rest of the site. Dog friendly also equals dog(or fox?) mess, careful where you step in the car park. A small complaint but the dog mess coupled with the approach via a council estate took the shine off our experience a little.
