Was a little worried when we booked and were given Room 3 which showed as being basic. Phoned to check that it wasn't how imagined but was told that they hadn't had any complaints. First nights deposit was paid so we decided to try it rather than lose a deposit. When we arrived we were asked to pay up front. When we got to the room, my worst fears were confirmed. The bathroom was too small to fit the washbasin in so it was in the main room and it felt as if we were in the servants quarters. The redeeming factor of the stay was having access to a lovely bathroom. We were booked in for 4 nights but had to leave after 3 because of the claustrophobic feeling of the room. The gardens are beautiful but,other than being in them, the only way to view was standing at a window. The owners are pleasant and breakfast enjoyable. Also, be aware that the parking is on a steep gradient - I was glad I had an automatic car.
