Our hosts were very gracious and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and our room was clean and tidy. The bathroom was small with a small shower but the room had excellent views. We wish they had better parking facilities for the number of occupants.More

Quentin & Jane run a lovely B&B. Having breakfast in our room with the greatest view was so romantic as was relaxing in the hot tub. Wish we could have stayed more than one night. Hopefully there will be a next time! Ken & Joy
