Forty Winks is a luxury B&B with self-catering rooms and a cottage.

                                  We were phoned by our host early the morning to remind us and to make sure we knew where to go. Very clean and very comfortable. Highly recommended

                                  needs a bit of maintenance . one of the plugs in the kitchen area was not working and gutters over the room next to us (6)needed to be cleared of leaves- rain was cascading onto the veranda right on front of the door

                                  After a 12 hour roadtrip we were happy to be offered a tasty supper with warming glass of sherry in addition to the pre booked bed and breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the view
