Colin and Jill were perfect host and hostess (even the following morning when Jill was dressed... More

We found this on Groupon, and I'm glad we did! I feel like it gave us a good taste of the area. The girl who ran breakfast (which was good!) was very sweet, and her son was adorable. I wish we came down and had drinks the night before, but we were too tired.

We arrived quite late and the place was in full swing but the staff... More

We rode through to here on our coast2coast bike ride. Good place - good food and friendly staff. Very friendly atmosphere and accommodating host. Landlord allowed us to store our bikes in a secure area - which was really useful. Room was nice and spacious.
