Perfect location and Chris is the perfect host. The breakfast is amazing, the person who said its the best meal of the day had obviously stayed here! The bedroom has a comfy bed, and great views from the balcony The cream tea on arrival is a great touch, and sets the standard for the rest of the stay
We visited the Pot and Barrel for my wifes 81st birthday on the 23rd March. The first surprise was the 2 flights of steps to the front door.Once inside we were given 2 flimsy pairs of mule type slippers, which were to be worn in the house. They were not very satisfactory as they constantly slipped off our feet . Then we were shown to our room which was up a further twisty flight of stairs, with no handrail. The room itself,(The Gold Room) was small but well furnished, but with nowhere to sit, other than on the bed. The dress code was smart/casual, which was slightly at odds with wearing slippers, and being served by the owner wearing shorts and a T-shirt. On the 3rd night my wife needed the toilet during dinner, and as there was no other toilet she had to go to our room. Unfortunately due to the lack of a handrail, and the slippers, she slipped on the stairs, and was unable to get up. It took myself and Chris,(the owner) a good ten minutes to get her sitting up so she could walk again.The lack of a handrail is bad especially for older people, and the slippers provided were very flimsy. older people visiting the Pot and Barrel should be aware of this, and should choose the Green Room, which whilst not having a sea view, is on the ground floor
If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!
