The only thing I can think of to say which is not positive is that this B&B is a short distance off the WHW. However, that is not a criticism of this fantastic B&B and I would urge people to make that extra effort to reach this fantastic B&B. Snow White and the 7 dwarves climbing the steps in the garden do make you smile (especially as Bashful has his back turned!) and sets the scene for the amazing interior. This house obviously expresses the owners' taste and is beautifully decorated in all the areas I saw, with many nice ornaments and other touches. While I appreciate these may not be to everyone's taste I would say to detractors that you are being invited into someone's home and should accept it as it is. We had a wonderful bedroom on the first floor with a lovely bathroom (shower) and comfortable bed - I had the best sleep of the entire WHW here as the mattress was not rock hard as in xome other places. There were lovely touches such as chocolates on the pillow and extra biscuits by the bed. Another nice touch was an array of goodies for sale (via an honesty box) on the landing - perfect for that 'I fancy something but I don't know what' moment. For those of a more healthy nature there was a bowl of fruit in the lounge.
Breakfast was magnificent. I'm pleased I didn't have the cooked breakfast as I would have embarrassed myself by not being able to make a dent in it! I can therefore recommend the Continental Breakfast with an amazing choice of fruits, meats, sausage and bread. And as for the homemade scones - they were amazing. Breakfast wasd served by, I assume, Drew who was quiet and reserved but whom I found to be personable.
Would love to go back...
