I booked Verandah House a couple of days before my arrival and was surprised when my booking details alone were required for reservation rather than a deposit. I thought that was very trusting! The reason being there are no credit card facilities but you can pay with euro or sterling on arrival and there is an atm nearby. The location is perfect - right off the High Street. The house is 1700's and in general the decor, furniture etc. were quite quaint and old fashioned. This results in a really nice feeling of stepping back in time. My single room was huge with two single beds and the wooden ceiling beams were visible. There are also sash windows but not compromising your comfort there are also newer double glazed panes on the inside. The breakfast was cooked to order and really nice. The owners were friendly and I would definitely stay again.
