A wonderful B&B! Anna & Kevin were wonderful hosts! I was down for a week the end of April/beginning of May so it was still pretty quiet around town. Anna made me feel very welcome and would take time to chat with me after breakfast (Give George my love!!). I love how close everything is, from the train station to... More

A lovely stay in a lovely B&B, such a friendly family with a gorgeous place kept clean and tidy and a very good breakfast. Spacious rooms with everything you need. Great value for money and situated in walking distance to shops, beach, bus and train station and free parking.Will definitely go back.

I had a wonderful weekend stay at the Ratcliffe. The Hosts were very welcoming, rooms were light and clean, breakfast was of a good quality and the free parking was a bonus. Perfectly located between the sea and city so didn't need to use the car much. Would recommend and use again when in the area.
