Room was clean, spacious and with little appreciated extras.. hot water bottle, plenty of decent clothes hangers. The current owners have run the Courtyard for a year and have an informal, relaxed and friendly approach. Fantastic proximity to the High Street with... More

From the initial booking with Emily, to our arrival where we were met by Darius, the service was warm & friendly with the rooms itself beautifully furnished in a nautical theme. Ideally located in the... More

Recently spent just one night (our daughter had two) made to feel welcome and couldn't do enough for you. Good breakfast,with a choice of locally sourced food. The breakfast room was also available for having a take away. Not only child friendly but dog friendly as well. Such a friendly and warming couple. Will definitely be back again.
