Guests then moved on to... More

Sarah and her staff treat you like royalty and make you feel very special. An absolute treat to stay in such a beautiful B and B with so many personal touches everywhere. The decor in our lovely large bedroom no 3 was romantic not to mention the romantic 3 course dinner served privately in front of the flickering lounge fireplace.... More

Our fourth visit to Dune Ridge and we give top marks once again to this B&B. Sarah, the owner, pays incredible attention to detail and as returning guests we are amazed that she remembers our personal likes and preferences - and it's all in place when we get there! She is also very hands-on and ever-present, which is so nice.... More
