We recently stayed at Winniehill for two nights and had a great time! Fiona and Robin have a lovely home and gardens and they make you feel very welcome. The breakfasts were the best and most varied we have had in a B&B (with a great view over the countryside) and Fiona also cooked us a great meal on the second evening.
You will definitely need a car to explore the surrounding area - we found their directions from the airport (and to and from other sights) were very helpful. We would like to have spent more time in the surrounding area but had to leave as we already had accommodation booked further west in the Algarve - we'll definitely be back though.
We booked one of the twin rooms with private facilties as the double en-suite was already taken. I was unsure about booking this as I always prefer an en-suite but decided to give it a go as a result of all the positive reviews. We were so glad we did as the room and bathroom were lovely and the whole place felt like a home away from home, albeit with better weather and better furnishings (in our case anyway)!
We also had an unusual accident with our car (my fault!) and Robin's excellent problem-solving skills managed to retrieve the car from BETWEEN two ornamental rockeries (slightly less ornamental after my parking adventure) - thanks again Robin!!
There is a "pool room" (overlooking a good sized pool) to relax in which contains books, TV and a good selection of DVDs. You can also buy drinks in the honesty bar. There is a small pub a very short walk away (we didn't get a chance to use it) although you will need a car to go out to eat. We had a meal in a neighbouring village at Antonio's which was very good.
This would also be a fantastic place for a group who could book all three rooms and have a very chilled out stay. This type of accommodation can be difficult to book on a short stay basis and Winniehill would be ideal.
