“A warm welcome”
Reviewed October 29, 2008

After a long drive we received a very warm welcome followed by a delicious home cooked meal with a complimentary glass of wine or two! Our room was delightful and had everything we needed. This was a great B and B to stay in before starting to walk the South West Coastal path and we would certainly recommend it to anyone. The owners were happy for us to leave our car in their carpark for 3 days too which was really helpful and offered us tea on our return after our 35 mile walk!

I would echo previous review. We stayed in the ground floor annexe room in June with our two young children. This room is a family suite ie. has adjoining twin bedroom for the children so we didn't all have to share the one room. Nothing was too much trouble for Brian and Sarah and they made a real effort with our two young children, which is a rare thing to find these days. Little touches like lollipops on their pillows and toys waiting at the breakfast table made all the difference, plus they actually took time to talk to the children which meant our two little ones looked forward to going for breakfast. Sarah was such a hit with our little boy that he kept asking her if she wanted to come out for the day with us.
We believe that the quality of the accommodation and the hospitality received represented excellent value for money and would not hesitate to return when visiting this area again.
Thank you Brian and Sarah from James, Lisa, Freddie & Florence

  • Liked — Child friendliness and having inter-connecting room for the children

Lovely guest house. Good location. Rooms nicely decorated, spotlessly clean, snow white fluffy towels and lovely little touches to make you feel at home. Excellent well cooked breakfast with plenty of choice. Sarah and Bryan could not have been friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. My husband is disabled and cannot manage stairs and we stayed in the ground floor annexe which was very spacious and easily accessible. Would recommend this guest house to anyone.
