We had high expectations having read previous reviews, and we were not disappointed. Ian greeted us and made us feel so welcome. The room was really lovely - i could have spent the whole of our 3 days indoors! We arrived at just around 5 o'clock so went up to the lounge to have drinks and nibbles with the other guests. Ian showed us the lighthouse light room which is kitted out with comfy seats and binoculars for guests to use. The views from there are breathtaking. Our final day was Valentine's Day, and we were treated to heart shaped choccies and a bottle of fizz in our room. The breakfast tables were laid with rose petals and red roses in the vases. The breakfast was gorgeous - fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts, etc. and expertly prepared cooked food. It was perfect in every way, and i would have loved to stay for more than 3 days - maybe next time...
