This B&B is perfectly located for a holiday in the area: there's loads to do nearby and it's only a 2min walk to the coast and some cracking views/cafes/restaurants. The B&B itself is absolutely spotless. Everything is so clean and beautifully decorated it feels like a little bit of luxury. The new owners are keen to please and make you...

We booked this B&B last minute on a whim for the bank holiday weekend, and what a great choice! We booked the family room as this was the only room left but it actually worked out well for me and my sister - she got the double bed and I got the bunk bed! Room was a nice size, bathroom...

I stayed here for 2 nights in early May. Tony and Pauline were very welcoming and most accommodating when my business trip didn't go according to plan. Everywhere was freshly decorated and very clean and tidy. Lots of power points in my room too which was unusual to find! Great to have on site parking too. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely time, warm welcome from Pauline and Tony. We booked a twin room which was really nice and clean. The owners were very helpful and friendly, Tony helped us with our luggage to our room. I cannot fault the service, it was top mark. Breakfast was excellent, a lot of options. I definitely recommend it.
