The downstairs is quite small but has everything you need. Lovely big shower room and toilet. Large comfortable double bedded room upstairs, and another twin bedded room. Quite low ceilings so you do have to watch your head! Quite dark downstairs (when it was dull) but we had our breakfasts on outside patio. Covered parking for car (and bikes). Jane was very helpful and approachable. Small children would find the stairs a bit tricky but overall would recommend this for two couples. Wish we could have stayed longer.
