A lovely relaxing homely retreat. Very accommodating and safe for the lone female traveler. Great facilities, lovely food, friendly hosts and cute dog Ted! Would recommend the bnb to anyone and would stay again if in the area.

Welcomed at the door by Tim. Superb room over looking the sea, very clean and tidy. Breakfast, well probably the best Salmon and Scrambled Egg I've ever had. Evening walk along the seafront was very pleaseant. Cannot find a fault.

Easy to find lovely accommodation. We stayed in the double room which had amazing views of the west coast sunset. Comfy bed, plenty of hot drink and fresh water supplies. Separate dedicated guest bathroom was just down the hall. Lovely hosts and a very tasty breakfast. Would certainly go back!

Really enjoyed our stay, thank you for making us feel so welcome. The whole house is spotlessly clean, breakfast was excellent. Loved our room overlooking the sea, very comfy bed, so quiet and peacefull. Can highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone wanting a nice quiet base to explore the area from.

Tim and Hilary were wonderful hosts, laying on everything you could possibly need and happy to give advice about things to do in the local area. Breakfast was delicious and the room was spotlessly clean. We would recommend highly.
