We booked this B & B as we wanted to visit the nearby Shaker Village. Our stay didn't start well. We had no sat-nav in our hire car, my phone's internet wasn't working and we were quite lost. I rang the B & B to get directions but I got an answering machine message. We finally navigated our way to the site where we were greeted, unenthusiastically, by whom we presumed to be the host. He said he hadn't answered my call as he was busy mowing. We were shown to the room (which was nice, if a bit shabby) and then, after being told where we could walk to get an evening meal, that was it. No tea and coffee, no water, no information about the area, no access to a kitchen. We walked to get our evening meal (a very good pizza) and brought back a bottle of wine to drink with it. We had no bottle opener, so I rang the host three times. Again, no answer. We ended up digging the cork out with a knife and sitting in a dimly-lit sitting room (no table) drinking out of two slightly dirty glasses left in the room. The next morning we were treated to a nice breakfast but the damage had been done. The excuse we were given was that there was a wedding being held at the B & B that weekend, but ignoring the needs of your B & B guests is not appropriate. We will not recommend this B & B to any of our friends.
