My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night recently.
The house itself and our room were beautiful, decorated in Victorian style.
We felt welcomed by the other guests and Robert (host) to hang out in the sitting room in the evening and enjoy company. Robert made my boyfriend the most delicious Irish coffee, and recommended a great wine for me.
Also, while a very small detail, just want to mention my appreciation for the writing style of the B&B guest guide in our room-- it was actually really witty.
The breakfast menu and choices were great-- I was excited to see "pancakes and maple syrup" on the menu as I rarely see these since moving the the UK from Canada...
although my one complaint was that it wasn't maple syrup as promised (was some sort of golden syrup) and I don't think the pancakes were homemade, so they were a little tough and dry.
But the whiskey and cream porridge was a hit!!
(Foodie lesson learned-- always stay local with food!)
Thanks for a great stay.
