We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fountain Place. Linzi and Justin were delightful hosts who made us feel very welcomed and spoilt. The accommodation offers all the luxury one can expect from a 4-star suite together with exceptional taste and attention to detail. We highly recommend Fountain Place for a home away from home.

What a perfect place to stay! Apart from being beautiful it has a lovely ambience. Attention was given to many small details - like hot water bottles and fleecy gowns for the cold night we were there. The breakfast was excellent and attention was given to how each of us likes theirs cooked! Justin and Linzi were perfect hosts -... More

We only had three nights at Fountain Place and needed longer to really appreciate the lovely surroundings of this beautiful place. The whole experience was lovely from the beautiful suite we stayed in, and the delicious breakfast to the whole ambience created by the amazing fountains and gardens. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and we loved chatting to... More

A delightfully situated guest house in this small attractive town. Mark was most welcoming and we enjoyed hearing about the locality as we sat and watched the sun set in the beautifully maintained garden. The restaurant recommendation for the evening was spot on and a pleasant c hange to be able to walk back to the guest house after dinner.... More

Fountain Place is very small, just two suites with a sitting room and bedroom plus shower-room. Jane and Mark look after you as soon as you arrive, booking restaurants, which are surprisingly plentiful in this little town and helping with your itinerary. The rooms are very comfortable and McGregor is a delight. Breakfast is served outside except when cold which... More

Fountain Place seems to be one of those establishments where you feel at home immediately. Jane and Mark are attentive hosts, without feeling intrusive in any way. The rooms are comfortable, the gardens pleasant, with plenty of birds, and breakfasts on the patio in the cool of the morning was very special. We had such a good time that 2... More

The welcome we received on arrival at Almond and Plum cottages was as warm as the temperature, 40 degrees! Jane and Mark were gracious and available hosts and the cottages were excellently appointed. We had a wonderful family holiday over the Christmas period and will certainly be back for more. Andrew and Jenny Wilson.
