After reading all the great reviews, I was excited for our stay at the B&B and Mick and Theresa did not disappoint. There were freshly baked cookies waiting for us upon arrival and then a tour of the (gorgeous) grounds.
While the room itself (we stayed in the two-bedroom "suite") was nothing spectacular, it was clean, tastefully appointed and served its purpose well. What was spectacular was the property and grounds. The whole house was beautiful and then you go outside and everything is... beautiful. It truly feels like a country retreat with all sorts of animals, green fields and a picturesque pond. We also made use of the newly appointed cinema with a huge projector screen and wide library of dvd's.
The breakfast served each morning was wonderful. Everything from the muesli to the yogurt to the bread was home-made by Theresa and was absolutely delicious. I also believe they offered a free drink at their well-stocked bar each evening, but none of the people in are party really took advantage of that.
This B&B is a fantastic retreat and can't be recommended highly enough.
