Great room (ground floor) very large with lots of nice touches, fresh milk, biscuits, bottled water, hairdryer, luggage rack and most importantly a very comfy bed. My other half particularly enjoyed the vast array of reading books supplied in the room too, so much so I now have a lengthy amazon wish list! Fantastic breakfast to boot.

Beautiful Guesthouse, well maintained and well run by Liz and Ian. Our room was a spacious double with lots of added extras. Fresh milk, sweets along with the biscuits, tea and coffee you normally get. There was also a bottle of water. The breakfast were superb, you certainly would not start out hungry. The guest lounge was large and welcoming... More

As returning guests we were thrilled with the improvements that Liz and Ian had made (not that we thought Kerr Cottage needed any) but they seek to improve your stay at every turn. As always the accommodation is great with lots of little extras in your room, good quality bedding and beds to die for. They are so comfortable you... More

We stayed for two nights last week and had a brilliant time. Liz and Ian are very hospitable and gave us some good advice on places to visit and eat! :) Amazing breakfast (sausages are the best! and so is the granola!).
