Just an average place but the price is high
Chris User Profile
Response from Chris:
Considering that the upmost respect, hospitality and helpfulness was shown to the guest, this is not reflected in the surprisingly blunt and short review. The price is in fact average if not good value considering the time of the year (festivals) and competition for accommodation. The guest has said he would amend the review but this does not appear to be forthcoming.

Response from Chris:
I could not meet Theodore's check in requirements, alternative suggestions were made but they would not have worked for Theodore's arrangements so we both mutually agreed to cancel. Theodore is an excellent communicator and was very clear, respectful and understanding in this transaction; I would not hesitate to recommend him as a user on this community.

This is a great option for a stay close to the airport (about GBP17-20 for a taxi, or cheap public bus option). While it takes about 45 mins to get into town, the bus is just 4 mins walk away, and takes you straight into the center. Chris kindly allowed us to stay 1 night, with a very early flight wake up. The house is small, and a little creaky on the wooden floors, so we were a bit conscious of noise moving around, but very comfortable bed, lovely green view onto a park, and a variety of breakfast goodies to-go in the morning! Chris is an attentive and kind host - he let us borrow cash to catch the bus and offered various transport details.
