We have visited Waters Reach on several occasions before and it is like returning home. Chris and Heather make their guests feel so welcome. You would find the choices for breakfast hard to beat at any Guest House of the same standard. I particularly look forward to Heather's fresh fruit salad to start my breakfast each morning.

What an excellent B& B ! Chris and Heather are very welcoming (thank you) with their homemade lemoncake in the room, and telling you what there is to do in the area and where the best restaurants are. Cooked breakfast was excellent and also the variety of cereals and homemade jam were more than enough.We hope to come back someday... More

After a long journey from Pembrokeshire, the welcome was just what I needed. Nothing was too much trouble. I booked the last single ( over the weekend 22/23 July) for a wedding at Parley Manor just 5 miles away. The location was great as I was able to book a meal at The Ship, just over 5 minutes walk away.... More
