This is a wonderful place to escape and enjoy the beautiful surrounding landscape. I booked on the basis of the reviews on TripAdvisor,and it looked and sounded too good to be true. But, I can verify that it really is a lovely place. The double room, was beautifully decorated, the bed incredibly comfortable, with a spotlessly clean en-suite bathroom. The guest house is a converted barn and restored to a very high standard, with some lovely original features. The weather was awful though and after a very exhilarating walk to the coast, I was very grateful to come in to a welcoming fire and a drying room to hang my wet things. Steven is a very attentive host, and the evening meal and the cooked breakfasts were superb. I was so impressed that I have already recommended this place to many friends and this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review but I felt was so deserved and shall be making a return visit.
