눇This was our first visit to a B&B for several years. It was a wake-up call that B&Bs can be excellent!
The house itself is down a winding country lane not far from central Enniskillen off the Belfast road. It is clearly signposted and there are several welcome 'reminder' signs along the way because the sinuous nature of the road can make 2 miles feel far further than it really is!
Our welcome was genuine and warm. Joan explained how the B&B worked - choosing one's breakfast the night before, where the lounge and dining room were, and which key fitted which lock. We immediately felt at home and were delighted with the cleanliness and comfort of our ensuite room, plus the tea, coffee and biscuits! The water was beautifully hot during our stay and the shower had great water pressure, which can be a problem in a house where the hot water system is shared between many users ... though not here! Particularly welcome was a little glass pot containing all the little essentials you might forget to pack and need urgently ... cotton wool, cotton buds, sewing kit, shower cap, plasters, aspirin etc. That shows not only attention to detail but a real understanding of what a guest might need in a hurry but not necessarily want to bother a host for. We couldn't have found kinder and more attentive hosts than Joan and her husband Tom, both of whom make you feel really welcome.
The house is set in a large, beautiful garden, with a two person swing, a summer house, and plenty of places to sit and enjoy the stunning views. The colour and quality of the lawn was in sharp contrast to our own brown stubble after an overly-hot summer.
After a great night's sleep, in a comfy bed and absolute quiet both from inside and outside the hotel, we went to breakfast. Or more like a break-FEAST! The choice is generous, the jams and fruit compotes are home made, the breads varied and oh! the cooked items!!
