          The best cheap accommodation I have stayed in. Clean comfortable room and hearty breakfast. £31 b&b. Only negative is I couldn't watch tv whilst in bed. Lynn is really friendly and the pub has good beer and a roaring fire.

          Arrived around 9pm and the welcoming hosts cooked us a meal. The room was very spacious though basic, and the bed very comfortable, offering a great night's sleep. Would definitely recommend the cooked breakfast!
