The property is rustic and beautiful, lovingly presented, comfortable sitting areas inside and out.
Breakfast excellent, we also liked the honesty bar and the attention to detail throughout the property.
Unfortunately my wife and I found it impossible to engage in any conversation with the owner/front of house, not expecting deep meaningful conversation but general chit chat is normally OK isn't it ?
The lady did show us around the house in a matter of fact way, and was also quick to point out dos and don'ts - which included avoiding the squeaky floorboards in our room, as this may disturb other guests - my wife and I are Business Owning Mature people, who do not appreciate being treated as children.
The house guide had enormous comedy value in that the many rules and regulations are straight out of a Fawlty Towers manual, including a statement that any breakages would be charged automatically against your credit card !
Overall my wife and I had a nice weekend away, but we won't be back as we want something warmer and welcoming.
