The two bells at the front door did not work when we arrived and so we had rather a long wait. The welcome was good, but the room (which had been booked well in advance) was on the top floor and was very small, as also was the double bed; and the shower/loo was too tiny to be practical. The bed was hard up against a velux window blind covering the only window and the tv was diminutive. The breakfast was good. The soundproofing in this house is poor. Altogether disappointing and not good value for money, and parking is very difficult in the area.
