Has to be a good contender of being the best B+B on the PW.
Really nice helpful people as well.
Only problem is you need to book up well in advance as its so popular.

Found the "stables wing" to be a bit basic - more like an upmarket bunk house, not ensuite and possibility of up to 8 people sharing two showers and two toilets.

Also, do not take the "shortcut" through the tunnel that the landlady recommends when you leave - it's a death trap. I met half a dozen people on the walk who had slipped and injured themselves in the tunnel.

Do the prices reflect the reduced facilities?

(Incidentally, I heard on R4 today that the Chelsea Pensioners each have a 9foot by 9foot sleeping cabin, without windows, and that they share a couple of showers and four lavs between either 50 or 100 blokes (not sure of exact numbers). Some of the old codgers have to walk 50 yards to the lav and not all of them get there in time, so they have "comfort bottles" but have to queue to slop-out in the morning, a practice I believe has been phased out in prisons. Having been trained by the army, I suppose they know not to complain.)
