The fact that we couldn't extent our stay.
We spent 7 nights at Arbury Lodge in July. Anita is a lovely lady who made us feel more than welcome in her home. Our room was at the back of the house, very clean, quiet, and homely.
My husband is a great lover of food, and so breakfast was definitely a highlight. Porridge, full English breakfast, vegetarian sausages, all varieties of eggs, a big selection of cereal and fruit, juice, tea and coffee, toast and buns, all freshly made (save for the buns)... My eggs were cooked to perfection. You can tell that Anita enjoys taking care of her guests. Her dog and cat are lovely, well-behaved pets and made our stay even more memorable.
There are enough parking spaces at Arbury Lodge, and we were also welcome to use the backyard. The walk into town is a good half hour long and lovely in nice weather, but buses also run every ten minutes, so it's not a problem getting into the center. Anita was very helpful in giving us directions and happily let us park our car at her house well beyond checkout time.
Getting in late on the day of arrival (about 10pm) wasn't a problem. Cocoa, tea, coffee and cookies were waiting for us in our room, which also provided TV, a hair dryer and internet.
A pub, fish'n'chips and several shops are just around the corner.
We will definitely come again and can recommend Anita's B&B without reservations.
