“Thanks for looking after us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Colin and Kenny made us really welcome and cooked a fab breakfast for us in this really friendly and comfortable B&B. Lovely location and owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. We were on bikes and they let us store them there until late the following day so that we can go on foot and train to see the area before collecting them later.

Many thanks for your review Simon, Much appreciated.

Pleased to know that whilst here enjoyed your short break away.
It was so nice to meet you both as it is always nice to meet genuine and friendly people as yourselves.
Thank you in return for the breakfast chit chat laughs, it all makes for a happy home and workplace for us here so thank you again.

Glad the return journey home was safe and hope all your family are all well also.
Remember if youre ever cycling past and need a stop you know where we are.
Until then best wishes always
Stay well safe and always happy & Best wishes to Ruth.

stayed at the croft a few months ago and found it to be a very pleasant stay, the rooms are nice and well equiped, the hosts colin and Ken were very friendly and made you feel more like a friend than a guest, would recomend anyone to stay there if in the area. Well done guys keep up the good work. all the best for the future. Stuart Sunderland.

Many thanks for your kind and appreciative review.

Glad you like all the changes weve made since taking over, seems like ages now lol
Its always so very nice to see you both,happy and cheery always on arrival aswell as departure.

With both yourselves being in the same kind of profession, and run your business to a high standard (as Ive found myself when visiting you) - You understand all the workings behind the scenes to keep the clock ticking so to say lol ! Very long and unsociable hours but well worth it with lovely friendly guests.

The bonus is both of us being of a nursing background have many many tales and enjoy your company always.
Have a great 2014 wishing you all the very best - Stay well safe happy and thank you once again for your kind comments.

We had a lovely over night stay on our way back from cornwall, Colin and Ken where really friendly and we left feeling we had know them for years. The croft is a lovely place to stay, its very clean and the food was great. I am sure we will stay there again and we would recommend it to all.
