My course colleague and I are staying about once/month at Grennan's while studying part-time nearby. Deirdre and her family are very accommodating and really helped us out one time when we had car troubles. Her self baked scones are the best I've ever had and you can chose between staying in the main house or across from it a their self accommodating facilities-both excellent and great value for money.
Also to be mentioned: Her beds are very comfortable and you'll have a good night sleep!
