My husband, daughter and I had the immense pleasure of spending one night here in October. It is one of the very best B&B's we have stayed in. Everything from the accommodation (online photos do not do it justice) the breakfast, the location, the masses of tourism information provided, and of course Steve's warm and friendly welcome could not be...

Wonderful B&B. Everything is so well thought out from the provision of extensive information on the local area to the nice quality furnishings and the perfect breakfast with lots of home-made touches.

Hi SueMScotland! Thank you for your lovely review!

Fanastic B&B, exceptionally well-run; hosts Steve and Colette could not have been more accomodating (they even provided amazing weather!); spacious, immaculate rooms, delicious breakfast; a great home base when cycling or hiking (the countryside is spectacular & the roads far from busy); my ancestors left the area in the early 1800s to come to Canada -- it was a thrill...

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the room and service at this out-of-the-way place. Steve and Colette had thought of each detail to make my stay there more comfortable.
