What a fantastic little find!!! Stayed here for 2 nights, very personal and welcoming! Room 4 was a little noisy but nothing we didn't expect when we checked in with it being close to the road. Have recommended to everyone we know :) thank you!!

Great location firstly - just off the Main Street in Box. Parking is a little tough and restricted but adequate. Fran and mike are very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure you have a good stay. The rooms are immaculate, comfy bed, great bathrooms (modern), good breakfast.

I travel a lot and can say this is as good as any B&B I have experienced. The room, furnishings, bed and linen, lighting, bathroom all excellent and tasteful in a contemporary... More
