We booked the b&b through expedia for £75 a night a few weeks in advance, unfortunately the owner didn't get the confirmation but luckily a room was available and the owner made us feel welcome when we arrived unexpectedly.
We had the four poster bed room, which was lovely, the bed was made of beautifully carved wood and all the furniture in the room was exquisite, with a carved wooden wardrobe and a dressing table. The room was chilly, a halogen heater was provided to help with this and a small television was on the dresser (I've yet to see a smart phone bigger but perhaps @Jane_H has access to different technology).
The bathroom was also quite chilly and would benefit from more heat and there was a loud pumping system attached to the sink, but luckily I hadn't got gastroenteritis so didn't spend long in that particular room. But perhaps bathrooms are more important to other users like @jaqueline_w.
My boyfriend enjoyed the full English breakfast and they accommodated my vegan request well and despite having a busy breakfast service as the VW car club was visiting they even cooked my own sausages for me.
The bed was really comfy and the mattress great. The staff were really friendly, really accommodating and the location very good.
The view out the window wasn't directed at the countryside, but the inside of the venue more than made up for it, with a spectacular collection of interesting items including: a suit of armour, a cheese axe and a lit open fireplace in the breakfast area which was very quaint.
All and all we felt the bed and the breakfast were great and we would love to return one day.
