B and B looked OK at first, even though there were items making the place look untidy from the outside, you had to duck around flowers to get through the door. The bedroom was a good size and seemed clean, although one of the towels had brown stains on. The downstairs wasn't that clean, the owner had very strong views which shouldn't be pressed upon guests and upset my wife. We came down for breakfast a little earlier than arranged and no-one was about, when he turned up 15 minutes later he started cooking the food and appeared flumoxed about this, struggling to find items in the kitchen. I wish he hadn't, I had burnt food, uncooked food and what was cooked wasn't enough, my wifes food was the same even though she had a veggie option, the sausages were cold, the eggs were burnt, we didn't get any peace while eating and had more opinions pushed on us making us feel uncomfortable. We couldn't wait to get out and come home.

I stayed at this B@B with my partner, just after the may bank holiday and we were very disapointed. The first impression from the outside, did not look like the photo from the website, it was quite scruffy, garden not presentable, grass not cut. The room was small and dusty, not much room at the side of the bed. You have to share bathroom with the owners, its unclean and the tiles need a regrout. The dust behind the toliet, had hair mixed in. In the morning i was confronted by a pink hair lady who turned out to be the owner, who was upset because i took my shower to long. The breakfast was fair i guess, but for the price of my stay, it was just ok. I tend to like having breakfast in peace, but the owner kept talking. I wont be back.
