    Nice house in a secluded area. Upon arrival I was pleasantly greeted by the proprietors and shown to my room. A decent sized single room facing the front of the property. Everything was very neat and tidy though a bit dusty. Facilities were basic, a kettle to make tea/coffee and a small tv. Big wardrobe that had some of their own clothes in it. Adjacent bathroom just down the hall. Equally as clean and tidy with some products left in their (for the family I presume). For my taste the bed wasn't that comfy, I think it was the thin pillows that were the problem. Easy to come and go but being in someones house you obviously don't have the freedom of a more impersonal hotel. Finally I woke to a "full English breakfast" being cooked for me which is always exciting but this however was perhaps the only small negative from my stay, I would probably call it a quarter English, 1 small slice of bacon, 1 sausage an egg and some mushrooms (tomato was offered as well) accompanied by 2 small pieces of white toast and a small glass of juice. Though included in the price of the room I did find the food dissapointing, perhaps for a small child its sufficient but for a male adult it barely scratched the surface. Thankfully a cereal basket was also on offer. Overall a very pleasant stay with delightful hosts but some small room for improvement.

    This was a last minute booking but considering the price was expecting a good level of cleanliness and service, I had booked the king sized bed and that is what we got the room was superb but lacking a good clean, it looks as if the owner uses the room like a dressing room with a large hair ball near where the hair dryer was, on trying to hang up a few clothes we found that all the wardrobes and drawers were full of what I assume are the owners clothes. Breakfast time was another revelation being told by the owner that she is no good in the morning due to an illness that means she is unable to get dressed and function properly. All in all a lovely house BUT as I said earlier definitely not value for money. ( DISAPPOINTED )
