The minute you walk through the door of the neat house, the hosts Chris and John make you feel very welcome. When you enter your spotless room you will discover that nothing, really no thing, is missing. Umbrella (which we did not need), hair dryer, snacks and tea/coffee, water (sparkling or not), a fridge in the hall with milk and... More

Before I arrived, I was not sure if this one is as great as it was described on the web. However it is more than I and my friends expected, the room is nice and clean, the surroundings are so quite and the breakfast is outstanding not only for the delicious tastes and also for a great combination of ingredients....

I took my Mother for her 84th Birthday and we managed to pick the worst weather this Summer, however our stay at the Bed and Breakfast by the Sea was a highlight! The room was super, cleanliness is excellent and everything has been thought of from an iron to home made cakes to go with tea. Absolutely faultless. Although we... More

Went by reviews on Trip Adviser and wasn't disappointed, excellent in every way. Room lovely and clean, breakfast to die for, owners very friendly and helpful - scrumptious cakes. Would return and highly recommend. Thank you.

There are no words to describe just how welcomed you feel by John and christine. A fantastic couple who have an outstanding B&B. You cannot fault this place in any respect. Every detail has been thoroughly thought about and delivered to the highest standard. From things as simple and tea/coffee in your room to freshly homemade cakes and cookies on... More
