Lyn has achieved something quite exceptional: her personality is apparent in every detail of the house and the garden, but at the same time she allows you to be what you are! No small feat. You really feel at home, everything is there to use. You are well taken care of without being smothered: freedom and respect are the key values.
Our room was very spacious, a king sized bed, excellent bathroom with a wealth of scented candles, lotions and aroma therapy products, fluffy towels (always warm and clean).
Breakfast was gorgeous: a fabulous fruit salad, exquisite yoghurt with honey, famous Craster kippers, every cooked breakfast you could possibly want, very good coffee (says a Belgian coffee addict).
Massage is highly recommendable (the best ever!). Extremely relaxing.
For us it was a revelation (and we have been to many a B&B).
Do go and discover this gem in Callaly!
