Everything said in previous reviews still stands. Great rooms, beds, breakfasts, hosts, coffee machines, toiletries and luxury extras! Already booked to return in October. Thank you both for another great stay.

My husband and I stayed at the leeway to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We stayed in cook, room was lovely with some nice attention to detail. Particularly enjoyed the full breakfast in the morning. Very welcoming and provided recommendations for cocktails and dinner. Nice peaceful weekend away. Would recommend.

Just returned home from another amazing stay at The Leeway. Cannot praise Garry and Karen highly enough. The place is a credit to them both. Our room as always was immaculate and comfortable.

Such a warm welcome provided by the hosts Karen and Garry complete with chocolate cake. The accommodation was perfect for our stay with a large stylish and well fitted out room. Breakfast on both days was great and included daily specials. The coffee machine provided in the rooms was a great added extra.
