Stayed here for 3 nights. The hospitality was fantastic, and the room was immaculate, comfortable and spacious. Right from the get-go we were made to feel at home and all our questions about the local area were answered. Our hosts were always happy to help and the breakfast was delicious. Would happily return.

Such a lovely Bed and Breakfast. Pam and Colin couldn't be more helpful. The place is completely spotless. Pam's local knowledge and helpfulness couldn't be bettered and Colin's breakfast is beautifully cooked. I must also mention that Colin's stick lengthening skills are second to none!!

The staff gave us good recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. They even lent us small book with good hikes. Although wifi wasn't very fast, they gave... More
