This B&B was a great find. We stayed for two nights and paid the same as we'd previously paid for one night in another Lyme B&B. Overall, it was a very good experience. The owners were friendly and accommodating - we were late arriving due to a huge traffic hold-up, but that wasn't a problem. We were even offered use of their garage, which is a short distance away.
The room was great - very comfortable, with a sea view and full of all sorts of books! Our bathroom was down a flight of stairs, but as there are only two rooms that really wasn't a problem as we felt quite comfortable wandering around in our dressing gowns. This was just as well, as getting there involved walking past hundreds more books stacked high on the walls, so we regularly found ourselves browsing these on our way there or back! The bathroom was spacious and very clean, and although we were offered use of the smaller bathroom upstairs on our second night, we preferred to keep using this one.
Breakfast was very tasty and decent size portions, and a veggie option was no problem (although I believe you need to mention this when you book).
It's not posh, but it is extremely friendly and homely.
Overall excellent value... although we did end up spending quite a lot on books!
