We recently spent two nights at Water's Edge during our 14 day road trip around the 'North Coast 500' - though with all our diversions to explore the remoter areas it became the North Coast 2000! Bill and Gill were wonderful hosts and as fellow Lancastrians we really appreciated their northern humour and hospitality. Their beautifully located B&B is sumptuously... More

We only stayed here for one night on our North Coast 500 trip but to be quite honest, I'd like to just move in. It's definitely priced at the luxury end of the market but it delivers in spades. The room we had was beautiful and every thought had been put in by Bill and Gill to make their guests... More

What a fantastic Bed and Breakfast. We were will looked after by the owners and the views from the deck are spectacular. Although the weather wasn't fabulous we spent plenty of time outside taking in the views. The breakfast was very homemade and very very good

We stayed for one night only, but will be going back. The rooms are luxurious and thoughtfully decorated and equipped. The balcony looks over onto the water and it is large and comfortable. The garden is also lovely to explore. The proprietors Jill and Bill are extremely welcoming and the breakfast is to die for

This B&B is at the luxury end of the market. It is very clean, no dust no odours just immaculate. Above all the hosts are very genuine friendly people and really do make you feel at home. Its a brilliant quiet place to chill out.

We have booked with Bill & Gill every year since 2008 and always have a lovely stay. The room, view and breakfast are all fantastic and the hosts are some of the nicest people we have ever met. We hope to see you both again next year and thank you once again for another memorable stay.
