Quiet former maid's room at the top of a Victorian family house, now refurbished with en suite toilet and separate shower and redecorated with butterfly wallpaper. TV, radio, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities, small fridge, wifi. £5.50 breakfast charge p/person/£3.50 continental breakfast.
The cosiness of a period attic room - separate and private, self-contained. Please note that the staircase up to the attic is fairly narrow, so not suitable for the elderly, infirm, or those with heavy luggage. The futon bed is fairly low, but with a 'memory foam' mattress-topper to make it more comfortable. Most guests report a good night's sleep.
Guests will have access to the dining room for Continental breakfast: home made bread, choice of cereals, fruit and yoghourt. Also 'full English' on request: 2 eggs (done how you like) + bacon, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, baked beans and Hash Browns (or equivalent) plus all the ingredients of a 'Continental' breakfast. Most of the spreads are home made.
Interaction with guests
We would like to advise and help guests as much as possible regarding places to eat in the town, where to go and what to do. Also internet access.
Other things to note
Between us, we speak French, Spanish and German (as well as English) so would be very happy to host people who speak these languages. We have travelled widely and are comfortable with people of all nationalities and creeds.
As pensioners, we prefer quiet after 10 pm, but we are happy to offer a key to guests after this time. This is a non-smoking household, also no pets, preferably, although we did have one well behaved dog one frosty night, who was no trouble - too cold to leave him in the van.
