I was traveling with my brother, and we came straight from the airport to this, our first B&B. We were welcomed (much earlier than expected) with cake and tea and fabulous hosts (and a friendly dog) and a warm fireplace. Everything about this stay was fantastic for two jet lagged travelers just looking to sleep a little and catch up to Greenwich Mean Time (and yes, to wander the wall and meet a few sheep). I especially loved our huge bathroom and Molton Brown bath products--I always feel filthy after a long flight so this was perfect. We caught a wedding at the Priory (bagpipes and kilts!), were served some interesting drinks before the priory tour from a hilarious ticket agent, and breakfast the next morning was filling and yummy yummy yummy. Thank you again to Christina and Bob!!!
