What fabulous hosts we had! Our room was perfect for us and very clean. The breakfast was perfectly cooked and presented. The Guest House is very well situated too and having parking was an extra bonus. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Looking forward to going back next year

Thank you for your review, we do not think the room description is mis leading, the text on our website clearly states that this room has a "sea view from the side aspect of the bay window".
