Highly recommend this B&B for families. We traveled as a family of 5 which is very hard to accommodate but Lynn and her lovely hubby had a very spacious room for us with bunk beds and a single bed for the children and a huge double bed in an adjoining room for us. The fact that the room was decorated... More

Really lovely place, the rooms are totally unique and you can see how much thought and care has gone into their design. The owners are very kind and friendly, they even gave me some painkillers as I had a banging headache after overdoing it at the towers! Breakfast was delicious, so much variety- we'll definitely stay here again highly recommended.

What a beautiful place, the owners are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe themed room and can't wait to re visit to see some of the others. Would highly recommend and the breakfast is exactly what is required before spending the day in the theme park Cally and Carl

All the rooms have different themes and I think you get to choose which room you want, but we were quite late booking and didn't get a choice. However, upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely...
