The hosts really have thought of everything and we have extremely high standards. Our only disappointment was the 2 restaurant recommendations made by the hosts, they were both geared up for tourists with...

The standards of decor and fittings (rooms and bathrooms massive) are quite simply outstanding but when you add the warm hospitality of Peter, his wife, and Dee then you have an experience which is hard to beat.

What a find Selkirk House was, located in a quiet residential area the house is perfect. Most of the previous reviews say it all.

At weekends the restaurants can get fully booked, so it pays to make...
