What a beautiful B&B. Every inch of this property is immaculately maintained. A previous reviewer called 1708 house more of a Boutique Hotel than a B&B and I agree. Molton Brown products, perfectly clean and quiet rooms, a beautifully presented and delicious breakfast and gracious hosts - who could ask for more? I stayed for two nights. Although the beaches...

We stayed three adults and two small children (1 & 3) in one of the charming cottages. The location was great, with a very short distance to restaurants and shops, and a 30 min slow walk to the beach. Lovely staff and good value for money.

My dear friends gave us a weekend away at 1708 House for our wedding gift. We had such a wonderful stay.
