The cottage is very easy to find. Chris and Claire are very welcoming and the room was perfect - nice size, very comfy bed, lovely little wooden window seat and great en suite shower with lovely soaps, shampoo and conditioner. Breakfast was delicious I can't fault it and hope to go back one day. Thank you!

Brilliant breakfast with unlimited tea, coffee and toast - everything anyone could want. Very good situation in the village close to all amenities. Highly recommended for a relaxing stay in this...

Breakfast was delicious, choices of cereal, fresh fruit (peaches or grapefruit), yoghurt's and various juices. Cooked breakfast was perfectly prepared and with plenty of tea, coffee and toast,...

We received a very warm welcome from Chris and Clare, very friendly and helpful. The room was so cosy and comfortable and spotlessly clean. Nice hot shower. Little things make all the difference e.g a nice warm bathroom, a little pot to put used teabags in, things that are generally absent in many B and Bs. There was an amazing... More

My daughter and I stayed here last weekend and couldn't have been made more welcome. It's the perfect place to stay, lovely large bedrooms with everything you need. Delicious breakfast cooked with local produce. It's perfectly situated in the High Street with parking behind the house. We dined in The Top Ship which is just a few minutes walk away.... More

Can't speak highly enough about this B&B. From the warm welcome, to the fond departure, Chris and Claire make you feel welcome, with nothing being too much trouble. My Mum and I shared a more than able room with lovely showe. The toiletries were luxurious , doubt you would find better at a 5 star hotel. Great breakfast to set... More

Breakfast delicious. Thank you so much to our hosts. We had a... More
