This is a charming place, full of character. The rooms are lovely and spacious and clean. Nice quiet location, only a 10 to 15 minute walk into the centre. Our host John was really welcoming and friend lolly and gave us lots of suggestions for things to do. Breakfast was great too - lovely choice of sliced breads.
