The property has a lovely, simple and stylish character.V Very quiet and well appointed. Breakfast was delicious. Rooms are tasteful but perhaps less self-contained in functionality as expected with a kettle and tea/coffee bags in the room but cups and milk in a shared scullery downstairs. I hadn't realised it was a 'no children' venue on booking with Wotif - as a single parent, I travel a lot with my daughter.
