We spent 3 nights at the Howekeld B and B and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay. The rooms were large, modernized and with every convenience. The hosts emphasis on "being green" was a delight to experience. Breakfasts were generous with eggs cooked to request. The fresh local breads were a real treat. The weather was very rainy and...
