We received an extremely warm welcome, you get the impression that nothing is too much trouble - and all for a third/half less than the other 2 B&Bs we'd stayed at in the previous week in Cornwall.
Towels and bed linen were clean, breakfast was big and included lovely fresh tomatoes on the vine (and perfect fried bread!), we had a TV in the room, a lovely view over the garden and I slept very well.
The walk into moretonhampstead, with it's surprisingly good pub/restaurants and very friendly locals is a mere 2/3 minute stroll, and the beautiful Moors are within walking distance too.
The one and only reason I couldn't give 5 stars was because of the sort of old smoke/musty smell downstairs. 5 minutes with the window open in the room got rid of the traces upstairs, but I think maybe if they were a little more careful about where they smoked in their own parts of the house it would help greatly. If it's not smoke, then maybe a good steam clean of the carpets or something would do it? I'm not sure. I just think this may be colouring some people's first impressions of what is, essentially, a well run, welcoming and traditional B&B.
Oh, there was lots of parking too!
