We chose to stay at Farm B&B as a result of a last minute search for accommodation in the area. I would not choose to return.
While the proprietor is friendly and polite, the B&B does not live up to its website description, nor, in my opinion to some of the other reviews here on trip advisor.
Our room was particularly small and felt cramped because of the low ceiling and gaudy wallpaper…not at all spacious, as described on the website. If there was a larger room this was not offered to us, despite the fact that we were the only guests. The bedroom carpet was well-worn, as was the bed linen. There was a noticeable stale tobacco smell throughout, which was masked only on the evening of our stay, by very powerful cooking odours from the kitchen, which permeated the entire guest section of the house. The TV reception was patchy, to the degree that it was impossible to watch. The tea and coffee making facilities were poor - the milk was powdered and the sugar was damp.
Unfortunately there are no en suite bathrooms in the B&B. In order to get from our room to the communal bathroom, we had to navigate the very steep threadbare stairs and make our way through the guest dining room AND the kitchen. The bathroom was spacious and clean.
The dining area was small and dark – not as it appears on the website. We chose not to have breakfast there so can't comment on the quality.
