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

Really made to feel welcome. Rooms were nice, clean and airy. Bathroom and towels all very clean. Good sized breakfast, and very helpful people with plenty of reccommendations if you're stuck for what to do! A+ would stay again.

We found this place on the internet, and we couldn't have stayed in a more welcoming guest house. Thankyou to Jill and Norman! Lovely, clean and comfortable rooms, with added touches i.e. fresh bottle of water every morning, as well as the tea/coffee/hot chocolate and biscuits, all very much appreciated. Wonderful, comfortable beds! Nicely furnished room! Breakfasts were so good,... More

Had a lovely stay here. The owners couldn't have done more for us; when we mentioned it was our wedding anniversary several minutes later a cyclamen appeared as a present for us. The room was large, and so was the breakfast. Would visit again.
