We stayed for 4 nights owners were very friendly and had good knowledge of the local area. Room was a good size and very clean. Breakfast was beautiful and lots of variety available. Good location within walking distance of the town. We really enjoyed our stay

Plenty of pluses including parking and position (it's only a five minute walk to the high Street and another five to the seafront) On the negative side although the choice of pre-breakfast yummies including fresh fruit and yoghurt the actual breakfast was let down a little by the...

The bed was comfy and we both slept well. It was about a 10 minute walk to the sea front. The breakfast was tasty and Sandie recommended places... More

A very clean and comfortable stay, Sandie was very welcoming and provided us with lots of useful information about the area. It did feel a little bit like staying at a relatives house but it was my first time experiencing a guest house. Sandie appeared to be staying up for us, waiting for us to get back in the evening,...

Nothing wrong with this B&B but not to my liking really. Dated and a long walk from the sea front. Hosts were pleasant enough and kindly did some washing for us, as we were walking the south west coast path. Nothing to complain about, just that the whole place seemed very dated.

Having booked for our 25th Wedding Anniversary I was hoping for a quiet little retreat. Upon arrival we were met by Sandie who after asking us to fill in the guest book then took us to our room. 4 poster bed and a spacious room.
