We really enjoyed our two day stay here. The Proprietor, Julienne, is lovely and she made us so welcome throughout our stay. The room was immaculate - bright , amazingly clean and fresh - oh and such a comfortable bed. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend this place to everyone.

Our room was spacious and very clean . We really enjoyed the home cooked breakfasts which came piping hot and well presented. We only met Julienne and she was friendly, helpful and informative about the local area. Thanks for a lovely few days despite the weather! We will be back! Michelle Collins - Bristol

Had a wonderful two night break at this Guest House. Relaxed hosts who couldn't do enough for us, also made our granddaughter so welcome. Offering ideas of local things to do and always going that extra mile. Attention to detail in all areas too. Breakfast was delicious and presented so nicely on plate (no drips etc). Homemade compote and marmalade... More
