Superb location, excellent accommodation, exceptional hosts,and a very very quiet location no noise from anywhere. We could not have had a better short break, Anne and John are extremely knowledgeable about the local area and I advise future client's to take on board where they tell you visit/tour/walk I promise you will not be disappointed. We wish to thank you... More

Glad you liked our Blue room and that everything suited you so well. We're very pleased to share cuttings and plants from the garden and hope these garden cuttings take root and remind you of Balmillig's garden. Maybe you can return in the better weather and see some of the blossom. Very best wishes and thanks for your review, Anne... More

Our visit was in January for a week to visit lots of old friends, and we were concerned that our B&B base would be really comfortable and warm at such an inhospitable time of year. We needn't have worried - we found every aspect to be truly superb. Anne and John were such thoughtful and friendly hosts and their attention... More

Anne and John were very welcoming, accommodating and knowledgeable about the local site. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable. My Dad, who has a bad back, appreciated the good bed. We will defiantly choose to stay here again when we are next up visiting family. Thanks again.

A really comfortable Bed and Breakfast. We came for a weekend in January to visit friends. The weather was appalling - wind and rain and hail but we were made very welcome in a warm and comfortable room. Despite arriving quite late in the evening the owner drove us himself to a nearby restaurant and then once again to church... More
