This is a B&B, so mind Q's ands P's
This is an awesome property, but for a solo traveler, who paid for a double room - my friend was on a budget - I think this Estate is more about form than substance. When I arrived, one of the owners (I think) met me at the door with an umbrella - nice touch - but then said, "I thought you would be two!?" Well, of course the default on is 2, so already I felt tension in the air. He was very nice to me until I booked another night. My friend on a budget visited and the proprietors treated him like a curiosity as he stood on the patio with the rain pouring down in buckets. They invited him in, we went into the drawing room, and since I had paid for it, I invited my friend to breakfast the next morning, but he later canceled, feeling uncomfortable. I felt fine until the next day when I was asked to a tip for a one-inch square of "harvested" honey. The food is very good. The accommodations are terrific, but the sense of welcomeness is lacking, and while you worry whether you will disturb their - or his - routine, if you ask questions, you feel as if you are disturbing their - or his - routine. That's as honest as I can say, especially for the price.
