Arrived to a warm, personal greeting from Sue, the co-host. Our room was well appointed with a large en -suite bathroom. All very clean, tidy and traditionally furnished. Bedroom was built into the eaves, which could be a problem for anyone very tall as there is quite a slope to the bedroom ceiling!
About a ten minute walk to the pub for dinner. It is on a main road and although there is a pavement for most of the route to the village, you need to take care (and a torch).
Next day, a well prepared and cooked breakfast overlooking lovely countryside. Eggs from their own chickens!
Two minor negatives-
1. Our room (room 2) was above the host's lounge and we retired fairly early as we had another day's walking ahead. We could hear their television and also a fairly heated discussion that they were having!
2. The exit by car onto the main A515 from the driveway of the B&B was very difficult as traffic is fast moving and visibility is limited by the bend in the road.
