Absolutely LOVED this beautiful place. Nicest B&B I've stayed in. A wonderful roomy character house-with the lovely older features with gorgeous furnishings. Am a keen gardener so loved the fantastic greenery around the place. Spotlessly clean & everything you could need for a very relaxing stay. Especially loved being able to do some washing-often a pain on holidays. Friendly hosts,... More

The tasteful bedrooms, ample living room area and fully stocked kitchen reminded me of an upscale beach out nestled in... More

Galvin's Edge B&B is fantastic! From the moment we arrived, Julie took care of our every need. When she heard my wife was gluten free, she adjusted breakfast foods to suit. When we had a patch of rough weather, she supplied rain jackets and an umbrella. She drove us to the airport to pick up a rental car, which was... More

My two friends and I spent three nights in this gorgeous B&B. We felt as if we had wandered into a luxury spa. Our bedrooms were beautifully decorated, very spacious and comfortable. We had a modern kitchen, nicely stocked with a wide variety of breakfast foods, including a delicious platter of fresh fruits each morning. And we had their gorgeous... More
