Both Angela and Stephen were friendly and warmly welcoming and obviously proud of their home - and why not? We were in Room 4 with our 8 year old son and Angela showed us up to our well-appointed room up on the 2nd floor under the eaves. From our Velux window we were able to watch the antics of a... More

Stayed 3 nights. The Single en-suite room was lovely -- with a great bathroom -- and a great deal at £35 per night. Both the (free) wifi and the TV worked well with no interruptions. The location is conveniently central, and Angela and Steve make you feel at home.

As part of our John o'Groats to Lands End charitable bike ride, we stayed in the family room for two nights. The room was a good size with a king and two single beds. There was a great shed to store our bikes. The breakfast set us up well with really tasty black pudding. Thanks!

Stayed 4 nights. Great room and felt at home with access to comfortable lounge and lots of local information. Breakfasts good but could have benefitted from more choice - e.g. fresh fruit or beans on toast. Steve and Angela very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful stay. Very friendly owners. Parking was tight but you were able to walk all around village. Across the street from bank. Clean and comfortable. Great breakfast. WIFI was so-so but we discovered same all over on our trip. My husband wishes the fan in the bathroom had a separate switch because it stayed on after light was off. Would... More

Thank-you for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay. I will explain the 2 points you raised. Parking is tight this month, as you will have noticed we are having work done to the rear of the house and have temporarily lost 1 parking space. Our fans work automatically with the bathroom light as all guests may not use the... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights here mid-June and would have been happy to stay longer. The breakfasts were always good and our room was large, light and luxuriously appointed. Loved the towels! There is a guest lounge available with a comfy sofa and lots of local information and other books to borrow. Free wi-fi with a good consistent... More
