Hopefully next year we will return for the 4th year running ( we are already provisionally booked ).
We have just returned home after a 5 night stay, which, once again was fantastic. We like to stay in the suite which is one of 3 rooms and the amount of space is brilliant especially if staying for a week as we like to do ! The double shower is also great and once set it starts with the push of a button so there is no problem in getting the temperature just right.
The weather as everywhere was very warm so I was supplied with a fan which kept me nice and cool in the night.
The breakfasts once again were wonderful, very hard to resist, the bacon is so succulent and even though I normally am not a sausage eater I find theirs hard to resist. As for the eggs, which are picked straight from the hen house, you would find it hard to find any as tasty anywhere else !!
Finally the hosts, Lindsay and Mark, They are so friendly and helpful they really make your stay special, nothing is too much trouble, they obviously work hard to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome in what is their home as well as a guest house. Their daughter Lily is a delight and Piper the black lab is adorable and so well behaved she puts ours at home to shame ! We are looking forward to next year already.
