Our daughter stayed here in the summer and recommended Morven as great place for our own stay (see Bec's review). Everything was just right, very comfortable bed, well-equipped room and excellent facilities. Great breakfast with a wide choice. Barbara and all her family made us very welcome and made us feel really at home. Thanks again Barbara! Jill and David.
