I would rate this a 10 if possible. The rooms are spacious and immaculate along with a huge "living room/dining room". Gail and Dave are warm and can't do enough for you. The breakfasts are huge and delicious. Lots of small touches to make you feel welcome and relaxed. They have raised the bar to which I now judge all B and B's and so far they are waaaaay in the lead. Thank you Gail and Dave.

We stayed here on the 31st of July and Gail was fantastic, she couldn't have done anymore for you and the breakfast was great. We had the whole of the upstairs to ourselves and the accommodation was second to none. The place is beautiful and what makes it even better are the views. Can't wait to book in the future.

One of our best stays ever. Gail is an awesome host with great recommendations and stories to tell. She is full of life and great to talk to. The breakfast was fab! The room itself was perfect. Nice fresh linen and a lovely fluffy rug. Bathroom was spotless and the biscuits on arrival were much appreciated. Thanks for a great stay Gail & Dave. We will be back!

we stayed here 1 night doing the NC500 Wow this is an amazing house and Gail is so welcoming and friendly, she couldn't do enough for us, we had the whole floor to our self's. the décor is to the highest standard. my only regret is we didn't book 2 nights. Gail even dropped us at the Seaview restaurant for our tea and picked us up after, although its not that far it would be a lovely walk if the weather is nice. i couldn't wait to get back from the restaurant to get comfy and relax in the beautiful home. After a perfect nights sleep with soft bedding, we had more choice for breakfast than anywhere else, from Salmon to full fry up. we would highly recommend and already planning a trip next year.
