The welcome was extremely warm. Lesley and Bob were very friendly and arranging. Even Bentley the Golden Retriever made me miss home a bit less. The B&B itself is lovely. Spacious, clean and well equipped rooms. Breakfast was also really nice. I would definitely recommend this place.

Stayed four nights in December 2015 with my mother as we were visiting a relative. Extremely friendly, helpful owners. Everything was spotless. Breakfast was wonderful with lots of choice, especially enjoyed the additional choice of the sunflower seeds etc! We would definitely recommend to others.
