We chose this B&B for a 4 day break in April on the basis of the Tripadvisor ratings we looked at and can only report that the plaudits are well justified. If we tried hard to find some small criticism of this place or the couple who run it,we simply could not! They seem to have thought of everything possible... More

Three generations of the family descended on John and Chris for a long weekend to celebrate a golden wedding anniversary. It's not often that I would class somewhere as "perfect" but there is really no other word to describe it. We took over the B&B for the weekend and were made to feel at home and very very welcome. It... More

I work in travel and have done for over 10 years and I am very critical of any accommodation I stay at. But generally I find B&B's far nicer especially in regards to value for money than hotels, hence why I booked this B&B. Every part of the stay was flawless, we were greeted warmly by Mike and Chris, who... More

We have stayed in all four of the rooms in this b&b, and each one is wonderful. Always a warm welcome received from the hosts, and offers of help with luggage. It is easy to park at this establishment which is located in a pleasant and peaceful road, within walking distance of a very nice beach. Bedrooms are beautiful, with... More

On arrival was met by John and Chris and shown to a beautifully decorated bedroom and spotlessly clean. John and Chris made me feel very welcome and if I needed anything just to ask them. Bathroom was super, soaps, shampoos, lovely fluffy towels and hot water !! Breakfast was the most delicious feast! Cooked beautifully and a lovely bright and... More

We recently stayed at Christine and Johns wonderful B&B with our 6 month old twins. Our stay was a pleasure, the room was spacious even for our family of four. The bathroom was pristine and the bed was so comfortable. There were so many special touches to enhance our stay, from the wine glasses and snacks to the waffle robes... More

Hello Thank you for your lovely review. I agree with your comment about the shower it is a static rainfall shower in the bath, which our plumber who is vertically challenged (around 5ft 3") put up and was very happy with his job !!! John changed it to make it full height. The bed was featured in "Four in a... More
