This is a lovely B&B in a good location, with wonderful people running it. The people were friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were great, with homemade scones and free-range eggs. The bed was very comfortable and there is free wifi. But there is a big problem. There is a strong smell of mold when you enter the house, and the bedroom where we stayed smelled so bad that I could not get past it. The room itself was crowded with a double and twin bed, with no room for luggage, and the wardrobe was piled high with blankets and extra pillows with no room for hanging up clothes. The bathroom door would not open all the way because of one of the beds. This room would have been better used as a double, and then there would have been enough room for luggage. We had to put our suitcases on top of the dresser and in the window. The room is just too crowded to be used as a twin room. If the owners could get rid of the offensive moldy smell in the downstairs part of the house, it would be a very nice B&B with no complaints. The people were so nice that we did not want to offend them, but I could not get out of there fast enough because of mold and allergies.
