This is not the cheapest B&B around but it is still the best value and a great example of the adage that you get what you pay for. Lovely people who genuinely care about what they are doing, and are friendly yet professional. I would not stay anywhere else in this area from choice - book now,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review - we really do appreciate it. If you do decide to visit us again and would like to reduce your costs the two upstairs rooms work out cheaper than the ground floor room. We have tried to reflect the size and space in the different rooms in our pricing structure.... More

What a superb B & B. Immaculately clean, extremely comfortable & so tastefully furnished & decorated. Couldn't be better. Liz & Ian are very friendly & nothing is too much trouble. Don't look around just book here you won't be disappointed. We will certainly be returning. Bet you can't eat a full breakfast either!

We have recently returned from 1 night at Kerr cottage, the only complaint I have is that it wasn't long enough! This really is a little gem. The cottage has been extended and renovated to the highest of standards. Kerr cottage definitely deserves it's 4* rating. And by far the best B&B we have stayed in. Very luxurious and high... More

We stayed one night at Kerr Cottage and we loved it! We were doing a mountainbike trip through Scotland with 5 guys. Liz and Ian let us use the garage to store the bikes, and after a super wet biketrip she even washed our dirty and wet cycling clothes. Now that's top service! After the bike trip we could watch...

We arrived and were parking as Liz was outside. Straight away she was very friendly and took one of our two bags to save me scratching anything no doubt :0). The cottage is in 100% condition. It's like a show-piece but also very homely and relaxed. As Liz showed us around she showed us in to the dining room and... More
