This is a wonderful B&B. Excellent reception from the owners. Nice big room and bathroom (Jack).
Breakfast lovely - kippers, smoked salmon, perfect scrambled eggs and then the porridge! When we read the reviews we thought - what's so special about porridge? Well this is made with honey, cream, dried fruit and nuts and cooked overnight in the Aga- try it and you won't be disappointed.
The whole experience is to be recommended.
