  • 8.0.Very good

    The owner was a lovely man who was personable and helpful, very informative. We stayed separate From the main house in a annexed room which was nice and clean. The bed was comfy but small. The shower is set so you would have to sit in the bath to use it. The main house is large and attractive, we went for breakfast on our first morning there and the seating was odd, it was meant to be for social distancing but made very little sense. Two tables had been pushed together and one person sat at one and the other faced as though two people who didn’t know each other were sat at a four seat table. All this would have made sense if then a family of four hadn’t come in and sat together with no distancing implemented. It would have made more sense to just have a two person table socially distanced. The breakfast was ok. All in all it was a good stay, a lovely village and close to amenities, excellent fish and chip shop and a lovely pub over the road that does excellent food.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Good location. Room was comfortable and price was affordable for my budget. It was a loft conversion so using the toilet was tricky without banging my head. Hot water took a while to come up and then adjusting the temperature of the shower also took more than a few seconds. Some channels of the tv didn't work well (due to a storm possibly). Breakfast was very good and our hosts were very pleasant and sociable. Room was comfortable and I slept well on the bed. Plenty of tea & coffee available.
