We only stayed one night here, but for some reason this place won my heart. The village of Clare is so quaint and pretty. We walked around town at night and stopped for fish and chips and continued our walk. The evening was cool and the beautiful church nearby was lit so beautifully. Ship Stores is a charming place as... More

We stayed at Ship Stores Guest House for 4 nights - what a great find. Debbie was so hospitable and the accommodation was very good - we stayed in the annexe. We managed to sit at a different table every day and the breakfasts were superb. Parking was not a problem at all and we travelled in a van with... More

We stayed here for 2 days as part of our UK trip. It is easy to recommend this B&B. Hosts are personable and friendly and like a chat. Breakfast was varied - continental plus a variety of cooked "English breakfasts". The room was clean and roomy, and had a small bar with beers etc at reasonable prices (not the usual... More

What a lovely Bed and Breakfast. Friendly welcome. Our room was upgraded when we arrived so that was a nice surprise. The rooms were a good size, clean, comfortable beds, tea/coffee making and a mini bar. The breakfast was really good, and the service was brilliant nothing was to much trouble. Will defiantly go back.

Lovely room, great shower. Mini fridge well stocked and great freshly cooked breakfast. Good price. The town itself is beautiful with lovely walks around the country park...well worth a visit? Larger double room in annexe worth the extra money

I stayed two nights and was very comfortable. The fried egg at breakfast was the most perfectly cooked I have ever eaten. Just a suggestion some fruit & yoghourt at breakfast would be nice. The recommendations of places to eat locally was very helpful.
