Hi, booked in the cream room how many does it sleep please x
The cream room has a comfortable king-size bed and sleeps two people, but it also has another room up a small flight of stairs that has two single beds in it, if u want to use these beds I suggest u call Lynnie and Paul to arrange.

Can anyone recommend a good nearby restaurant for the evening?
Our hosts , Paul and Lynnie, recommended a restaurant very locally, down by the water. It was busy, very buzzy and the food was good. Ask them, we can't remember it's name.
