One of Colin J's fellow Morgan owners :-) The comfort, cleanliness and service will be very hard to beat. Had a great 4 night's stay. It is such a quiet location, to hear the bids singing every morning is a joy - there were sparrow's nesting above my window, swallows nesting above one of our number's doors and wrens nesting...

Dear Colin J, It sounds as if you will be fighting them off at the door next time you visit! We only have six B&B rooms so the rest of the Morgan boys will need to be fast if they want to come with you next time around. Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments about both food...
