We absolutely loved staying with Heather and George in August 2016. They are amazing hosts with a wealth of information about the area and a real passion for showcasing all the attractions that the North Coast has on offer. Welcoming and inclusive but not intrusive!

Heather and George are very welcoming, the facilities are second to none and we wondered what must be required to attain 5 star accreditation. Spotlessly clean and a wonderful breakfast. Intend to visit again.
