Only if you're desperate
Happy Bits :-) * Parking was fine. Ample space * Nice enough people * The breakfast was beautiful (quick too) * The location is right on the A1, so it was easy to find Middling Bits :-| * The room was a decent size * Our room was overlooking the A1. At first, I thought the traffic noise would be an issue. but you quite quickly zone it out. Sad Bits :-( * Check in was confusing, there were no obvious signs for which one of the many doors you needed to knock on to check in. * I booked the stay for one person and paid £105. At the last minute I changed my mind and brought my wife along. The owner charged me an extra £110 for the second person! According to hotels.com, it should have been an extra £75. * The lock on the door didn't work. The B&B seemed safe enough, so I wasn't too concerned when we were out of the room. And the room comes with it's own wedge to secure the door when you're sleeping! * There were dark brown head hairs in the shower. * The bathroom was in a really poor state, functional, but it needs refreshing. * We paid for a room with a "garden view". The view from the window was essentially the A1 with fields beyond.

Just ok
Needs updating but comfortable and welcoming, breakfast was lovely although coffee wasn’t very nice. Shower was dirty and a rug covered up wonky flooring, however it is a lovely building and I feel with a little work it could be a really nice place to stay. Must say though host couldn’t be more attentive or welcoming
