This b&b is somewhere quite special. A cosy cottage feel but spacious rooms finished to a high specification with all the mod cons and lovely views from the window. You can have rooms that adjoin through the bathroom if you want which makes it great for families. There was also a lovely lounge with a toasty fire. The hosts themselves were exceptionally welcoming and helpful, above and beyond what would be expected of them. Breakfast was delicious, including perfectly poached freshly laid eggs. Overall value for money was excellent.
Negatives: very few, a bit of a drive up a farm road but not really a problem, the dog barked a bit but not overnight and he was kept out of all the guest areas.
Thank you to Angela and Charlie for making us feel so welcome, I hope to be back!
