Picked this family-run B&B due to a combination of reviews and it's proximity to a local function that I was attending. Pleased to report that it lives up to expectations! Jayne and Bill are very welcoming - and Jayne's flapjack was even more welcome! Rooms decorated to a good standard with lots of extras - bottle of water, fresh fruit, etc. Beds comfortable. Lounge with television, books, log burner and cake (mentioned that already!) - perfect location for a blustery evening. Wifi available - fine in the lounge, though due to the thickness of the walls (17th century) signal was a bit erratic in the bedroom. Not a problem for me. Breakfast excellent with a very wide selection of options. Jayne and Bill provide a wealth of local knowledge with plenty of suggestions as to how to spend a day out. The only disadvantage I may see for some visitors is the unavoidable noise in the front rooms from the nearby main road - not an issue for me (I slept well) - but could be for light sleepers.
Not the cheapest B&B in the area, but in my opinion well worth the extra. Would very much like to return in better weather!
