It may have an unusual name but anyone staying here will have a whale of a time. It's in a beautiful location with lots of great walks on the doorstep. Andy and Alex are excellent hosts - Andy has a wealth of knowledge of the local area and he really enhanced our 3 days spent here. The room was comfortable, breakfasts excellent and we even got 10% off at the local village eatery because Andy made the booking for us. We'll hopefully be back!

Room tip: Ask for Pine or Goodrich rooms as they have the best views

Having booked 2 nights at green whale tump b&b we turned up and the location was excellent we had booked a superior room with balcony the room we were shown to was neither. The room was decorated very basic in white 1 picture and 1 mirror on wall the balcony was only doors to open and a rail to stop anyone falling out not a step onto balcony. There was only a wardrobe in the room , no drawers to put clothing in. No TV in the room and the hospitality tray was very basic this is not what I would class as a superior room. Breakfast was luke warm and not what I would call a full English. the rear of the property was like a building site.
The views however from the room and gardens were fantastic.

andy w, Owner at Green Whale Tump B & B, responded to this reviewResponded 18 July 2013

We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Green Whale Tump and sad that you did not raise any of these issues during your visit so we could have tried to make things better for you. We would have certainly have cooked you a new breakfast and, if possible, provided extra ingredients for your second day. Unfortunately there is nothing we could do about our house style of simple decoration with natural oak flooring and doors and Indian rugs. We have always thought a wardrobe with drawer provided enough storage but we can now realise that we need to look into this.
We are mortified though, that you should accuse us of not giving you the room you booked. We have two superior rooms on Booking.Com. The superior double room (known on our website as the Goodrich Castle Room) and the superior double room with balcony (known as the Loft on our website). I can assure you that you booked the superior double room not the superior double room with balcony. If you no longer have your booking information I will happily provide you with a copy from Booking.Com.
We are very sorry that this misunderstanding has spoilt you break

Spent two wonderful nights at Green Whale Tump. Met by Ali in the guest sitting room. Tea offered and sat outside drinking in the views over the valley.
Our room was the Goodrich room which was spacious and a great view. The shower was a bespoke wooden fame which was a esthetically a nice touch in keeping with the use of natural wood.
Breakfast was superstitious with local produce. The local pub is 20 minutes walk and does great food and takes 30 minutes coming back?
A super place to base yourself , we would have loved to stayed longer

Room tip: Be guided by your budget

Booked a room for a special weekend stay. So glad we did!
Beautiful setting overlooking the valley and the river with a large door/window to make the most of the view. Very tranquil and slept with the window open without a sound from outside save the early morning chorus.
Nothing is too much trouble. Need a lift to the local inn? Not a problem. Information on the area? What would you like to know? Ali and Andy are the perfect hosts and treat their guests as long-lost friends. We don't often go back but this time we are already planning the next trip.
