I chose this B&B following Trip Advisor ratings and reviews but want to be honest and say I was very disappointed. The accommodation could not be faulted and the owners, Clive and Linda, were very friendly and welcoming, but having stayed at numerous B&B's throughout England, Scotland and Wales, felt that I was there for their convenience and not the other way round. I was prepared for the need to take my shoes off, this was not a problem for me as I was wearing sandals, but my husband found it more difficult with laced shoes. As someone who cannot function without my first cup of coffee, I did however find not being able to have one in my room very difficult. I had to get up, wash, dress, go downstairs, wait for kettle to boil, make coffee and remain there whilst I drank it and I couldn't enjoy a glass of wine before bed as I usually do at other establishments. There were little notes of what not to do throughout the premises and I found it very difficult to relax. We were at breakfast, which was nothing special, when Mary F from Basingstoke (see her comments re this B&B) and her friend were reprimanded, and to be honest, were relieved it wasn't us who'd done something wrong and could not believe it was spoken about in front of us! I must say Mary F was very good about it, especially as we had all been woken up by the people leaving early! I would not recommend this B&B for a relaxing getaway.
