We try to take long weekends to unwind ; and more often than not find ourselves in the very pedestrian friendly town of Portsmouth New Hampshire. On this particular trip we booked at the MARTIN HILL B&B.. After a long drive we felt like we had arrived at someones well loved home. The off -street parking led us to a pleasant serpentine walkway through a large garden to the main house. We where greeted and shown to a lovely room with a brass bed. All of this in the heart of a lively city which on this weekend was celebrating Christmas. You truly feel like you are on a quite island within a ten minute walk to some of the finest restaurants/shops in New England. The breakfast menu is outstanding and the owner /staff feel like family.
