Just returned home after spending a few nights. Friendly atmosphere and room was immaculate, food was wonderful and Gill and Norman are amazing hosts, after mentioning it was my 40th birthday the day before we arrived Gill got me some beautiful flowers. We will definitely return next year and recommend to friends and family.

Norman and Gill are very friendly hosts, the room we had was spotlessly clean and very spacious. The individually cooked breakfast was delicious with plenty of fresh fruit, cereal as well as full English or smoked haddock. Gill also seems to enjoy cooking and we had cherry and almond muffins on 2 mornings and pineapple and coconut cake on our... More

We've just returned from Norman and Gill's B&B having spent five nights. We were so impressed with their hospitality and kindness and nothing was too much trouble for them. The quality of the breakfasts was incredible (I know what I'm talking about here as a former food scientist). The whole thing was great and Gill's home made jam and marmalade... More

Very surprised to find such a welcome and lovely room at a guest house. Extras in room, very comfortable and very friendly hosts. Breakfast was freshly cooked with good quality ingredients, fresh fruit salad and nice yogurts and cereals. Very welcoming to our young dog Would definitely return in the future Thank you Norman and Gill

I tend to choose hotels as I generally like the more impersonal touch, but we decided to book into a B&B this time for something a bit different - and very happy we did. Upon arrival, we parked without problem (4 generous spaces available), and were very warmly welcomed by Norman. We had room 6, near the top of the... More

Our friends have stayed here many times and have always said how good the B&B was so we joined them for the weekend. Stayed for 3 nights, lovely comfortable clean room and nice big towels. Good tea/coffee and biscuits and fresh water each day. Fantastic breakfasts.Thanks Jill and Norman. Recommended.
