“Unclean, unclean…” the leper cries… (in mediaeval times at least)
I am really not quite sure when I shall re-open in these plague-ridden times – and I certainly do not trust any governmental suggestions… I was hoping perhaps mid-August/September, but there are just too many hoops to jump through in what is, effectively, my home.
So, as things do not seem to be materially improving, I have decided to remain closed until further notice.
So, just for the record: The Bench Mark is a private house that [used to] offer accommodation either on a conventional B&B basis or on a weekday ‘bed only’ basis, depending on what the guest requires. The house is comfortable and centrally heated throughout, with no TV making for a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere (there is free internet though). There were two letting rooms, both singles, simply furnished but with comfortable beds and cotton bed-linen. The shower room/wc was shared. The back garden is moderately secure, should you have been travelling by bike.
The 2020 rate for B&B… is currently irrelevant… The house remains completely unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues – even the cat seems to prefer the ground floor. One thing remains unchanged – I still make delicious Seville orange marmalade, available from N0. 25 Delicatessen, at the bottom of the hill…
I can’t imagine why anyone should wish to contact me, but the details are:
