I should begin by saying that Kay and her husband are wonderful hosts. Friendly and gregarious by nature, they go out of their way to make guests feel at home and are generous with both time and advice. I was traveling alone, but was given a huge double room with a double bed, a built-in desk, a small armchair, a small TV and oodles of storage space, with liberal access to the kitchen. My room was clean, comfortable and quiet, and I had only three small complaints to make. The shower stall was damaged and difficult to close, the towel provided was too thin and old for a bath towel (Kay promised to buy some better ones in future) and the two bedside lamps she had on hand were impossible to read by (if you don’t read in bed this won’t bother you). These small drawbacks were more than made up for by Kay’s outstanding hospitality and I recommend her accommodation without hesitation.

Many thanks for the feedback as it is always useful so that I can improve things. I am in the process of having a new shower installed and putting brighter bulbs in the lamps.

The guests booked the room at the last minute and then cancelled the booking the night prior to arrival. As I adopt a moderate cancellation policy , they were not eligible to be reimbursed.

Kay is friendly and the house is well located. Communication was fine and Kay was flexible about the check in time. The room could have been cleaner, however, and I was given the smaller single room rather than the double. Remember to bring your own towels.

Disappointed at your comments and you were only paying for a single room :-(
