This is a fascinating old house, very nicely renovated. The room was large and very comfortable, and the welcome warm and easy. As it's in right in the centre of this lovely old town it was also very convenient, with free and open parking at the front. Breakfast was well cooked with good ingredients. Many thanks.

A wonderfully restored guest house in a beautiful area in the Borderlands. Room was comfortable, spacious with the added attraction of a fabulous bath!! Breakfast was delicious and Gill and John could not have been better hosts.

Our hosts were warm and welcoming, serving delicious breakfasts with plenty of choice, the smoked haddock and kippers were a delightful addition to the breakfast... More

What a wonderful unique B&B with a great history. We really enjoyed our stay in this lovingly restored house built in the 15th century with 21st century comfort. We were warmly welcomed by Gill and John, who helped us to a personal parking space and gave us every assistance during our stay. Great for a get away

We stayed in this lovely B & B last year and so were very pleased when we could book it again. We've now slept in both Red and Blue rooms and both are very comfortable. Charming bathroom with the biggest bath I've even been in. The owners are very friendly and do all they can to make sure you have... More

Used by one of our large group every year for the past six years, this place is amazing inside & out & everyone speaks very highly of the owners. There is parking to the rear & the breakfast is superb.

Always well cooked and... More
