We stayed here on our way home from spending Easter weekend in Scotland. Mandy was so welcoming. Our room was at the front of the house overlooking the road but even though it's a main road it was not an issue. Our room had everything you would expect from a guest house and so much more besides. Lovely breakfast shared... More

We stopped one night during our walk last year. It is fabulous. The room, bed, towels and breakfast were just great. A most welcome rest following a difficult wet hike. They even aired our coats and boots for our following days walk and took me to collect a take away pizza. Mandy and Brian Well done.

Just got back from a weekend spent at Balcony House. Top quality rooms and really good value. Mandy and Brian went out of their way to make us feel welcome - offers of a lift in to town too but only takes 10 minutes to walk. Best full English breakfast we have had in a long time. If we come... More

A fantastic B&B just minutes from the town centre. The owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Gave great advice on places to visit and were really kind to give us a lift to a few places. Breakfast was delicious and there were lots of little touches around the building that made the stay extra special. Sweets, information... More

We stayed just one night and found Balcony House to be one of the best we have stayed in. We had a warm welcome from Mandy who showed us to our room which overlooked the front (room 1). The room was really well furnished and clean as was the en suite. The bed was really comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic,... More
