A Warning about this B&B.
The service is abysmal. By a long way the worst ever breakfast we have ever had. Owner is abrupt and unwelcoming (right from opening the door, we greeted him, and explained we had a booking. His response: "Ah, well... come in then" in a tone that says "you are bothering me")
The breakfast is offered as Full English Breakfast. I requested an omelette instead of the fried egg, and my husband is a vegetarian. The owner just made a note and didn't seek to clarify or explain what we would get. In the morning, the unsmiling cook presented me with a plain beaten egg swimming in oil. That's it. I asked the cook and she said: "That's what you wanted". The owner came and also claimed that's what I wanted, at first trying to make me feel as if it was my fault. In the end he offered to bring me some bacon and a tomato -from a tin. (no sausage, because "the sausages were not ready" -presumably meaning they were not defrosted). My husband got one fried egg and 5 small button mushrooms for his vegetarian breakfast. No beans, no tomato, even from a tin. My son was left hungry, because his "full English Breakfast" consisted of: one fried egg, one piece of bacon, one sausage and one tomato. Measly portions, ungraceful service, and on top of that, the room was cramped, with a musty, unclean smell, especially on the ancient duvet and lumpy pillows. There was also a kettle, but no cups or anything else.
Tiny bathroom with very old, non-matching towels of dubious cleanliness. Some positive reviews about this place refer to the views and the countryside. That's the only good thing. But if you are more discerning and appreciate comfort, cleanliness, quality and good service, do not come to this place. Be warned: Avoid!
Nice but cramped quarters
Good English breakfast. Family room was rather small for three.
