We read all the reviews and were really looking forward to our stay with Ann and Bill. A previous review said they were offered fresh tea on arrival, but sadly we weren't offered a drink on arrival nor fresh milk for the room. So we made ourselves a cup of tea with the supplied UHT milk, but as there were only 4 tiny pots it wasn't pleasant. We went out that evening for dinner and were surprised on our return that the milk hadn't been replenished, which meant we couldn't have a cup of tea first thing the next morning.
We stayed in the Lavender room which is a good size and comes with a large comfy king size bed. It was well decorated and had good homely feel, the area is very quiet and we had a wonderful nights sleep. The bedroom window looks out onto open fields from which we saw rabbits and a bird of prey in the morning.
On the negative side, the room was a bit dusty in areas, especially around the plug sockets. The en-suite is small and there isn't anywhere to put things, this was a bit of a let down. Also the towels were really small and the heated towel rail barely warmed. There were also hairs on the tiles and a pubic hair above the sink. It was however well decorated and the shower worked well.
In the morning we were really looking forward to breakfast. We both ordered the full English breakfast, the sausage, bacon and poached egg were perfectly cooked and tasted lovely. However, the baked beans has been overcooked and had turned to mush. The fried potatoes weren't cooked properly at all, they had obviously been cooked in oil which wasn't hot enough, this led to them being more like a congealed greasy mess.... as the tomato and mushrooms had been cooked in the same pan, they were also covered in a greasy potato mush. The potato's ruined the breakfast for me, I would expect this in a greasy spoon but not in a Luxury B&B.
