    Fab place to stay and close to lots of attractions. The carriage was great and we would love to go back but in the summer as when we went it was very very cold, the windows were always wet inside with condensation so that is why I have put 9 for comfort and equipment.

    We enjoyed our stay in the carriage. It was a great novelty for the children, and fulfilled a childhood dream, for my mum. It had a huge garden for the children to run around in and is surrounded by green fields. We enjoyed watching the birds eat their breakfast every morning and we were able to watch the red kites in the next field, most days. It is located in a good position for visiting lots of attractions and nearby towns and villages.The owners' B&B is overlooking the carriage but with such a large garden, we still felt like we had enough privacy. We were able to book a breakfast in the house on our last day, which was lovely and well enjoyed by all. We would definitely like to return in the future. Oh and the weather wasn't too bad, but obviously not guaranteed.
