I have nothing but praise go this little home on the banks of the Solway Firth. A lovely welcome, great room, extremely comfortable mattress, dog friendly and a superb breakfast in the family kitchen. Couldn't ask for anything more, you are doing a great job....More

Excellent views, great quiet location, super room and facilities, and attentive, informative, friendly hosts. Lovely couple of days walking in surrounding area, and the advantage of a local pub just along the road. Pity about the weather..................

Booked for one night as we were attending a surprise 60th at nearby pub/restaurant. Lovely B and B, spotlessly clean bedroom and bathroom and amazing breakfast. Tea, coffee making facilities in bedroom with spectacular views over the Solway Firth Would definitely stay again!
