This is a nice purpose built B&B in lovely surroundings. Whilst it is very nice - dogs and children are welcome, the hosts are welcoming and the place is lovely and clean there are a couple of things it is worth noting as it may effect your choice.
The room we stayed in was small - sink half the size of a normal sink in the bathroom which made filling the kettle a bit of a logistical challenge, shower no bath. This was ok for us - but worth noting if you like space.
The view out of our room was the side of a hill - more the inside of a hill with the path to reception running down the side - again fine for us as we weren't spending time in our room.
The sound proofing is not great - I could hear snoring from the room across the hallway.
There are no televisions in the rooms - you can watch tv in the lounge if you so desire but not in the room. Not really a problem except I could have done with something to mask the sound of snoring.
The parking is a bit on the snug side if the B&B is full. Not a problem if you have a reversing camera but a driving skills challenge if you don't.
The hosts are lovely. The breakfast is good. The views where you get them are stunning.
