Just as well I left the cat at home as this was the smallest room I have ever slept in. Beside the single bed was the only floor space, just a 6ft x 7ft triangle. Part of this was taken up by an open-fronted wardrobe and a chair. To one side was a small en-suite containing a shower, small wash basin and toilet. Surprisingly, I managed to find room for all the clothes and gear I had brought for a week's walking holiday. The room and en-suite were clean and fresh with good decor, and everything was in a good state of repair. Towels and bedding were changed regularly. Overall I was very comfortable and warm with central heating coming on morning and night. I cannot fault the breakfasts on choice, quality or quantity. John and Andrea were very good hosts and I would certainly recommend Cornerways as a very good value-for-money gueast house. I did manage to get a peek at the other three bedrooms (a double, a twin and a single) and they were all much bigger than the room I had. I would come again but would ask for Room 1 (single en-suite) rather than the Room 5 I had this time. A final word on parking. I paid £20 for a week's parking in the nearby station car park as all the roads around Cornerways have double yellow lines. However, I noticed that most people ignored these and I didn't see a traffic warden all week.
