My boyfriend and I recently stayed in Highfields for my birthday. Upon arriving, we were greeted by Maggie who instantly made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The guesthouse is absolutely beautiful and our room was spotless! Breakfast was AMAZING with many choices for us to choose from. As for the staff, Maggie and Kate could not be more helpful....
