The road approaching the house is very long and bumpy (no tarmac). The Sat Nav. led us to the locked electronic gates outside. We were let in quickly as we had phoned ahead. We booked to stay in a studio in the grounds of The Barn House B and B for a week but it was not ready (due to refurbishment). We were offered a room in the b and b instead and apart from the first night (when a family were upstairs) we had the whole first floor to ourselves. We were also offered the use of the fridge and kitchen with cooking, washing, drying and use of the dining room for meals. On our first morning we were offered to help ourselves from the table (variety of cereals, dried fruits, nuts, bread, fresh fruit and much more). The other family were tucking into very large breakfasts. The next morning we were offered boiled eggs (freshly collected from the resident hens) and toast. The next two mornings we had scrambled egg (very tasty). The other mornings we had toast but were offered more. On the last evening we were treated to a lovely Chinese meal. On the last day we had a full English which was cooked to perfection. The weather was wonderful and the views from the sitting room were amazing. We had a front door and gate key so could come and go as we pleased. We found the wireless internet very useful. We were so impressed that we have already booked for next year and hope to stay in the studio when it is finished. We would recommend this B and B for the facilities (and food provided), tranquility, the setting and the great landlady. Steep steps approach the house so it would not suit everyone but once our luggage was in (the landlady helped with this) we were fine. Steps approach all the properties on this site. This is the best place we have stayed in England.
