The main bedroom, in photo, is, I'm afraid not now available.

There is a single room, if you do not mind sharing with a drum kit. Also a comfortable, double sofa bed in the living room downstairs with open fireplace.

My stone built, slightly ramshackle home, on a quiet cul de sac, is not suitable for everyone, I have to say, but for those who live creatively, and who like to walk from the front door into the country side in one direction and down to the town in the other, it is ideal.

Richard is a really delightful host. He was warm and friendly, and made me feel very welcome. He invited me in to a dinner party he was having in the evening, and allowed me to join him on a trip to the local swimming pool. When you are in a new town on your own, that means a lot…

Although we couldnt make it due to the inclement weather communuications with Richard were great and I am making a beeline to his place when the opportunity next arises.

Good location for walking in to town. Parking here could be more of an issue. Richard is welcoming and easy going. He picked my daughter up from the station and took her to her first day of yoga training which was very helpful.

Very helpful host. I just needed a bed near to where I was working the next day and it did the job for me.

Richard is a thoughtful, kind host and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay . The house does have a lot of character, like Richard states clearly on his home page (he uses the words ' ramshackle ' ) - so if this isn't your thing .. .
