Where to start. Keith made us so welcome from the moment we pulled into the driveway. He went above and beyond our expectations in providing us breakfast and snacks through the day, and nothing was too much for him. We didn't want to leave and will hopefully be back for another festival soon.

We really appreciated Keith and Pauline's hospitality. The room was comfortable, had everything we needed and the bathroom well stocked as was the communal refrigerator including beer and wine on the house. Tea, capsule coffee and home made cookies whenever you needed it. Keith's breakfast was truly great and one of the advantages of B&B accommodation is meeting and chatting...

Gatekeepers is outstanding. This was our second stay. Keith and Pauline are very welcoming. The accommodation is very comfortable & spotless, Keith's breakfasts are delicious as are the little extras he and Pauline provide. Their objective is to ensure you are happy and they achieve their objective. Do yourself a favour - stay here.

We stayed here on the back of good trip advisor reviews, and the other reviewers got it right! They offer everything you'd expect from a B&B, and then some more. A coffee (Nespresso) machine, but instead of a choice of one or two pods, and a stingy supply, a dozen different varieties. Hot and cold drinks, including sprits, beer, wine...

I cannot say enough good things about the wonderful hospitality of Gatekeepers B&B.
