We arrived early and went straight to the Fountaindale to drop our luggage and found the lovely Tracey with a warm friendly welcome who showed us straight to our rooms. I love the traditional English B&B's which are always an eclectic mix of rooms. Ours was a twin with two single beds. a table with tea making facilities, a wardrobe and sandwiched between the two beds was the door leading to a small ensuite shower room. The room was spotlessly clean and had all we needed for our one night stay. My cousin's single room was rather spacious and grand with the bed placed in a large bay window. On the back of the door was a thoughtfully placed bathrobe since the bathroom with a huge bathtub was across the corridor.
Tracey gave us a map and some info about the local area, unfortunately we forgot to ask about a good place to eat and ended up at the steakhouse diagonally across the road for dinner. The décor was tacky and the food fairly average. Skeggy is a very walkable town, we felt that the distance from the town centre was an easy walk and walked to the seal sanctuary without any trouble, stopping along the way to look at the many and varied sights.
Breakfast was served at 8:30 which suited us just fine. The selection of food was very good and the hot food was quickly prepared and served. The treat for me was the lovely lady serving the food, so professional and proper!
Thanks Fountaindale for a lovely Skeggy stay, something I missed out on living in the UK in my childhood.
