We spent 3 very relaxed nights at this lovely B&B over the Australia Day long weekend. It's private, romantic, quiet and the breakfasts are fabulous! Judy and John have done a fantastic job here with nicely appointed rooms and that gorgeous walled garden/courtyard, immaculate gardens and a fabulous view from the deck which is used when the delicous breakfasts are served. Sitting on the deck in the evening with nibbles and a glass of wine watching the tide go out and the colours change was great too.
Judy's advice about where to go (or not) and restuarant ideas was very helpful and you can leave the car securely parked off the street in the evenings and walk to most restaurants.
