We had a 3 night stay at this great place, very clean, good breakfast and very friendly and helpful owners. A great bonus was that pubs and restaurants are literally a 5 minute walk down the hill! Can't wait to go back!

Kathy and Ashley were very welcoming. Nice and clean rooms with very good facilities. Some nice homely touches which added to how welcome we were made to feel. Beautiful home cooked breakfast. They went out of their way to ensure our dietary needs were met. Would definitely come again and will certainly recommend
