We recently spent 3 nights at Beckford's View. Absolutely excellent experience from start to finish. Helen and Mark are great hosts and welcomed us with a hot drink and home made biscuits on arrival. During our stay they provided good advice about the local area, places to eat and walks. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Their home is quiet, spacious, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Bedrooms are significantly larger than in many Bed and Breakfasts and there are a number of special touches including Apple TV, high standard bath products, home made shortbread, small jars of sweets and good quality coffee and other drinks in the room. Mark and Helen noticed at breakfast on the first morning that I ordered decaf tea and we returned to the room later the same day to find that, without requesting it, a stock of decaf tea bags had been provided. Breakfasts were gold star standard. Excellent selection of fresh fruit including poached fresh strawberries, high quality fruit salad, home made muesli, other cereals, yoghurt, freshly squeezed orange juice, organic porridge, several types of home made bread and perfectly cooked hot options. Location is about a 20-30 minute walk from the city centre, but for those who don't want to walk, there are regular buses from a stop only a minute's walk away. This place deserves to be at the top of Trip Advisor. I can only assume that the ranking is influenced by not only the quality, but also the number of reviews, and being a 3 room establishment it will take longer to climb the ranks. Cannot speak highly enough of this place. A brilliant find.
