This was a wonderful place to stay. We had the first floor room with views on three sides, and were able to lay in bed, and look at the sea in the distance.
Although just off the A1, don't let that put you off from staying there - you cannot hear any traffic - just the birds, and the contented chickens...
The room and facilities were beautifully clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were wonderful - perfectly done soft-boiled eggs, from the happy hens we could see from the Breakfast Room.
Andrea and Gary were perfect hosts - there when you needed them, but not when you didn't. The recommendation of a meal at The White Swan was an excellent one - our meals were superb.
A really good short break, and we are looking forward to a return visit in the Spring.
