We found the accommodations and hospitality to be absolutely superb. And being dog friendly took Devereaux Shields House over the top for us. Breakfast with the other guests was a wonderful experience while briefly getting to know some new people and hear about their travels and enjoying an excellent breakfast menu.

We stayed in Aunt Clara's cottage, a few door down from the main house. We had everything we needed, all modern comforts but the setting was spectacular. Our hosts (Ron and Eleanor) were wonderful and welcoming and provided us with so much information, local history and advice. Well worth the stay.

Beautiful house - like staying in a stately home but with all the facilities you need. Room in the main house with the extra bedroom ideal for a family with older children. Lovely traditional breakfast. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Short walk to town centre.
