's Trip
Found the place okay, there seems to be a few B & B's, plus Hotels down this road. Self check-in, so no one to talk to(there is a button to push), our room was in the basement, with a window facing the car park(if you looked up), there is room for 5/6 cars on the front if parked correctly, the room had the usual facilities, tea/coffee/TV etc, queen size bed. if you want breakfast this means a trail down to #16 down on the opposite of the road(we didnt partake) The Town is a 1.5 ile walk, or bus ride away. Would I stay again, unsure as above there are plenty of others in the streeet which could offer a better deal
