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

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

The hosts were most welcoming and the our room on the first floor was large with a double bed and an additional single bed with en-suite shower room. There was tea and coffee making facilities , with biscuits and a bottle of water each. There was driveway parking... More
