Lovely accommodation
The prior reviews and photos of the accommodation meant that we had high hopes for our 2 night stay, and I'm happy to say that we were not disappointed. We were immediately made very welcome by Sue and the room was lovely, albeit a little tight around the King Size bed, but it was perfectly fine for us. The breakfast was very generous, and I liked the idea of pre-ordering exactly what you wanted, all supplemented by cereals or free fruit salad. There is no parking with the accommodation and so it is first come first served for street parking. Having said that, we were very lucky and parked immediately outside. The town centre is a pleasant walk away. Will definitely stay there again.

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.
