Arbour House is a super B&B very close to the beach. The rooms are lovely and extremely clean. Sarah and Frazer could not have been more helpful and made our 3 night stay just perfect. The breakfast is excellent and the bed was comfy. We would certainly stay here again.

Parking was easy, we were either on the Arbour House drive or outside in the road where there are no restrictions for cars. The whole house is... More

Recently stayed for 4 nights at this excellent B & B. Sarah and Fraser are most welcoming hosts and the breakfasts are delicious. Rooms very comfortable and spotlessly clean very high standards all round. The added touches were much appreciated and free WiFi an added bonus. Will certainly return and have no hesitation in recommending to others.
