Stayed here for 3 nights in a single room, had everything I needed and very helpful, friendly staff. Full english breakfast is just what is needed in the morning as well as a smile from all the waitresses.

i couldn`t fault this bed and breakfast for friendliness, cleanliness and lovely breakfast, however the room was so tiny that was difficult to find space to sort out my belongings. Difficult for 2 people to manouver around each other.

Went with my walking group for the weekend and had a fantastic time. Julie, Andy ,Hillary and Beth all made our stay feel more than home from home, very relaxed and friendly, they really made our short break,. Food fantastic and rooms exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. Looking forward to going back again.
