Fantastic clean, welcoming place to stay
Sue was a great host - very welcoming and helpful, as was the waitress at the excellent breakfast in the morning. The room was clean, well equipped and tidy. Sue even put a jug of fresh milk in the room fridge - much better than those UHT milk sachets, and she uses good quality locally sourced products for the breakfast. Doesn't like like a place to naturally choose from the outside, but it'd be my choice for another local stay.

Great Stay
Stayed for 3 nights. It was a lovely 5 room B&B. Sue made us feel very welcome and comfortable during our stay. She made a variety of delicious breakfasts which were included in the stay. Highly recommend anyone to stay here and we will definitely come back.

All bases covered to the best standards
Great location, wonderful breakfast with plenty of options. Very clean and comfortable with a wonderful host Sue and her lovely, efficient assistant Isla. Loved the "treat" drawer and having fresh milk and water in the silent running fridge in our room. Cannot recommend this guest house any higher. Definitely one to return to if visiting the area again.
