A first class and charming service befits this lovely 18th century building, offering bed and breakfast with privacy and convenience just outside the town centre. Easy private parking is a bonus. Generous bedrooms and en suite facilities are spotless, traditionally and tastefully furnished in keeping with the surroundings. Breakfast is in the conservatory with views out over the extensive garden and a full range of breakfast options is on offer. The visitor can relax in a comfortable lounge. Anna and Dermot Smyth create a homely ambience with their friendly and welcoming approach and go beyond duty in their care of guests.
( Anna kindly posted on a jacket I left behind, procured signed copies of a book in which we were interested and organised 4 days of sunshine. )
