We decided have some family time up the coast, 2 adults and 3 children. After ringing lots of guest houses many of which could not fit what the consider to be a large family we were ecstatic to find the cara guest house who said they had last minute availability.
On arrival we turned up late and were greeted by a lovely lady Maria, she showed us to our room which comprised of 2 doubles, 2 singles. Which she had pre heated for us. I was pleasantly suprised, the room was large, clean, with sea views and had a large tv! It did have shared bathrooms but that was fine for a weekend stay. The room was nice and quiet despite being next to the front door and it being a weekend, so no complaints at all!
After a warm (hard to achieve in November but we were toasty) comfortable nights sleep we woke at 9 as our younger children like lie in, we were shown the cereal on offer, both my daughters had cereal, my partner had a fry up which he thoroughly enjoyed, my son had fried egg sandwich and I had toast. All of which went down lovely, my daughter requested further breakfast items which Marie made without a fuss, and there were no complaints when my little toe rags left half of it as their eyes are bigger than their bellies!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and extended for a further night so we could enjoy a lazy weekend to its fullest.
Marie was brilliant with the children, she was helpful, hospitable and non intrusive unlike other guest houses I've visited over the years.
Very happy with our stay, would visit again, and recommend to any "larger family" looking for a good sized room.
