Everything about this lovely B&B is perfect. Quality accommodation with genuine lovely hosts. I had a single room which made best use of space and is immaculate. Great breakfast with high quality ingredients. Everything is thought of for your stay, down to wifi boosters in room. Thank you.

My husband and I spent two nights here and loved it. Pam and Colin are super hosts who pay attention to every detail to ensure your comfort. The bed was very comfortable and our room and ensuite spotlessly clean. Beautiful breakfast with lots of choice. Want to return!
