We found David and John to be excellent hosts - friendly and very helpful. We had a relaxing stay. The room was clean and cosy, the bed comfortable and the food excellent. Thank you David and John. We hope to see you again in April.

This gorgeous little B&B gets a 5* rather than a 4* review from us primarily due to it's incredible staff David and John! We booked at extremely late notice due to needing a place to stay after a family tragedy before Christmas; and location for us to be with other family members was key. Perhaps slightly on the pricey side... More

On a walking holiday comfortable beds are vital. You will not be disappointed here. The whole place is spotless and the owners David and John are excellent hosts and John is an excellent chef. They have run the hotel for the past 10 years and have extensive local knowledge.

David and John are extremely friendly, helpful and unique characters. We felt welcomed as soon as we arrived, in fact even before then. Our room was lovely with all the amenities required. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and local produce. They were attentive when required and cooked to order, which is always a benefit. I would recommend... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay and have no complaints whatsoever. The room (5) was clean and comfortable with a lovely view. Breakfast was first class and the owners polite, friendly and helpful. The garden is an ornithologists dream. Will definately stay again
