Karen and Gary are very friendly hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast also excellent, a wide variety as standard, with daily... More

We had a little trouble with the sat nav finding this place. We found out this is common to the area so it's normal if your sat nav won't find it first time. It is however worth the effort ! The house is very clean and the furniture and general room fixing are to a very high standard. The bed... More

One of the best Bed and breakfasts we've had the pleasure of staying in .. we called in on the off chance and managed to get a room for one night. We were offered drinks and cake on arrival and nothing was too much trouble. The owners were very informative and we were shown to our room and everything explained... More

This is my 3rd stay at The Leeway and yet again I wasn't let down. Karen and Garry are the ultimate hosts from the fab greeting of coffee and homemade ginger cake to a lovely comfortable room and the best breakfast in town. Needless to say I'm returning in September and booked again for next July.
