Whitepark House must be near the summit of the B&B pile. It is wonderfully located overlooking the magnificent Whitepark Bay and when you arrive the informative and chatty Bob Isles serves you afternoon tea and biscuits.
Our room was more of a suite than a double bedroom with a lovely four poster bed and every mod-con from an electric kettle to an ironing board. In the bathroom, with both bath and shower, even the twin face clothes were tied up with a red ribbon!
Breakfast is served by Bob in the conservatory at a communal table and we had a fine meal over a very interesting chat with an American couple and their grandson from Ohio.
There is no TV - which does not really bother me very much - but I like to read in the evening and, as in so many places, the lighting in the cosy drawing room is inadequate in this respect.
Whitepark House is the sort of place of which Northern Ireland needs many more and Bob and Siobhain are to be warmly congratulated on what they offer..
