From the second we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome. The b&b is in beautiful and peaceful surroundings, even having a stream running through the spacious grounds. Because of the location the area is quiet and undisturbed. The rooms were lovely, nicely decorated with high ceilings and retsining period features. The food was great, Alisdair looked after us very well, making sure the log fire was lit for us on an evening and even serving us breakfast in the garden one morning. It was a truly relaxing break and we enjoyed every minute.
