Lovely room with a sea view. Very clean with all the facilities needed. The breakfast menu was vast with not the usual 'Full English Breakfast' you can pick from the large variety on the menu and make up your own English Breakfast or there was smoked Haddock, Kippers, Eggs Benidict or Eggs Gabriel, which I had and it was delicious....

The 4 poster bedroom was awesome!!!! Tricia was so helpful - especially as we had a few tricky dietary requirements for the breakfast. The whole house had an amazing arty feel to it, and lots of local art information/guides was provided for us too!

We were staying only one night, the house is very elegant and well appointed, our room very tiny but cozy with a great ocean view. The beds were too short for us and tiny but for one night it was ok.
