Very friendly, helpful host (Maya). Quiet, pretty, rural location. The accomodation is clean, spacious + well appointed. Lovely views acriss to the hills. Some animals on site to amuse the children (1 rabbit, 2 ducks, chickens etc) although some in cramped conditions. e.g. the poor giant rabbit in a small hutch took up literally 30% of the entire volume, like a human living in a phonebox.
MIS-SOLD! After scouring this site for safe, family friendly, 2 bedroom accomodation (which is v hard to find). We paid £260 (2 nights) for the '2 Bedroom Suite' (inc. private bathroom) at Plumpton House, which i assumed would be a self-contained SUITE comprising 2 rooms and a bathroom. i.e. part of the B&B entirely given over to us, that we could lock the door to and sleep easy, with our children safe, and a private bathroom. Either a cottage, dairy or a wing of the house etc. What we ACTUALLY got was- 2 normal, separate bedrooms in a B&B (i.e. our kids sleeping down the landing in another room) with the (theoretically exclusive) use of a bathroom across the landing, which is something VERY DIFFERENT indeed. So for security, we ended up with 1 adult + 1 child in each room. Wouldn't be such a concern if u have 2 teenage lads maybe, but a big worry with 2 small children. We could have achieved this at a chain hotel at lower cost, nearer our destination. After a poor night's sleep in a child's bed i thought 'oh well- a great big home cooked breakfast will redeem this place' - downstairs our hearts dropped as there was just cold cuts, fruit, cereal etc. admittedly a good choice, in a pleasant conservatory and with a very attentive host (and the croissants were good by UK standards). To be fair, a cooked breakfast hadn't been advertised, i just assumed it was par for the course at a big, premium, farmhouse B&B, but most guests here seem to be returning to the continent so perhaps there's little demand. Finally - the curtains in the children's room were flimsy, thin + white, therefore effectively pointless, so at 6am it was as bright as if the lights were on!
