Reviewed July 30, 2009

We booked for two nights but stayed for four as Tim and Hilary made us feel so welcome . We stayed in the King Size En- Suite ,it was really comfortable and peaceful ,with a lovely sea view from the window.I would thorougly recommend a stay at Hawthorn House with Tim and Hillary who are excellent hosts.

Loved our weekend there. Extremely relaxing and didn't want to leave. We had good weather which was a bonus. Tim and Hilary were great, food excellent including the shortbread! They were very friendly to us (and to the dog!), as was Ted!
We are really looking forward to returning for some more R and R, its the perfect place for this. Our 2 day break seemed longer, felt like a real holiday.
Many thanks to you both (and Ted), hope to see you before too long.

With 20 excellent reviews (now 21 ) what can I add without repeating what has gone before.
Suffice to say that only the deteriorating weather cut short our stay. Our No1 choice next time we are in the area.

We stayed at Hawthorn House on the weekend of the 27th of March 2009 for some much needed R & R. We got that in spades full. The en-suite room we were in (The King Size Room) was lovely and had a great view over the beach and the sea. The room is tastefully decorated with a sort of Egyptian colonial theme. The owners Hilary and Tim are very welcoming and work very hard to make your stay comfortable without being intrusive. In fact I broke my foot the week before we went and Hilary even offered to drive us into Port William for our evening meals to save me hobbling there.

They do their best to taylor the stay to your likes and needs and make an effort to network with other local businesses to make your stay as easy and restful as possible. This is a great example of how a good B & B business should be run and I would recommend it to anyone.
