I spent a week on Holy Island in a cottage across from the B&B. We were parking our car just outside this B&B. On the last morning we packed our car and went for a walk to St Cuthbert's Island. My daughter managed to get water in her Wellington Boots. When we got back to the car she sat on the back of the car and we pulled the boots off and emptied them in the road. The owner of this B&B then stuck her head out of the window and complained as we were messing up the road outside her B&B and said that it was now a complete tip. I was flabbergasted that someone could complain about emptying water onto a road on Holy Island, espcially as it had essentially rained or snowed most of the week we had been there. I wasn't best pleased and the conversation didn't go well. I was slightly worried that maybe I was being a little unfair to someone who was stressed about getting ready for new guest in her B&B. Having read the above reviews, it seems that maybe I was not. I enjoyed my week on Holy Island and certainly recommend it as a place to stay. If the owner of this B&B typically behaves as she did with us, I would recommend finding somewhere else to stay.
