We stayed in the elegant garden apartment for 4 nights and have never experienced such 5 star hospitality. What you see in the photos is really what you get - the garden apartment is truly a luxurious and beautifully decorated apartment, with great furnishings that make your heart melt. Jen and Mark have created an exceptional home in beautiful surroundings.... More

WOW, such attention to detail. Felt like royalty, Jen and Mark are such wonderful hosts. Lovely breakfasts and the perfect touches for Valentines Day. Our first B&B experience, how can others compare!

We are all totally unwound and relaxed as we left after another amazing night away from home......good food, great breakfast and comfort ++++ thanks once again for our secret hideaway treat. Even took the small person and she loved the gardens, cows, sheep and of course Buffy was the perfect companion for her.

Truly magnificent. Hospitality outstanding down to a change of towels twice a day which you expect in a five star hotel not a B+B. This was truly a 5* experience all round with truly fabulous breakfasts, So when we then had dinner with Jen and Mark on the patio we weren't disappointed and Blue Nose fish was scrummy. Thanks for... More
