Greatest place on the planet.
Absolutely the best 5 days I ever spent anywhere, and I have travelled all over the world, including a number of five-star hotels. I will be returning often in the future, but for a much longer period of time. I cannot say enough good things about this place or the proprietors, Susan and George. They are extraordinary people and delightful hosts. And they cook a delightful breakfast. Nearby there is a pub, the Steamboat Inn, that has some of the best food, atmosphere and regular clientele you will ever experience. I simply cannot say enough good things about our experience.

A wonderful find
We had a very comfortable one night stay on our return trip from Scotland. There was a pub just along the road serving wonderful food and great views of the estuary.

A gem in a lovely quiet location.
Simply in a fantastic location overlooking the Solway Firth.The small garden overlookling the beach & estuary is superb to watch the tides and bird life. The addition of the new Summer House at the garden edge will make this little Guest House unique and as others have said, the old summer house (taken by a storm) makes for such a restful place to observe. For this reason we definitely want to visit again, even if it adds a hundred miles to the journey.
