Lovely warm welcome received on arrival and the fresh pot of tea was a nice touch. Really friendly couple and great advice on local places to eat. Breakfast in the morning was perfect. The only criticism during our stay is that the bread hangs out the toaster so had to be turned half way through :p

We could not fault this place! Extremely friendly owners, gorgeous bedroom, silent throughout the night and the best cooked breakfast we have ever had - not greasy and with scrumptious sausages and proper cherry plum tomatoes! This is a beautiful area to explore and this is the perfect launchpad from which to explore!

We were met by a very nice man who's first question was would we like a cup of tea! I knew straight away we was going to like our stay! Beautiful garden with a trampoline at the bottom. I enquired if I was allowed a bounce to which the lady replied "at your own risk" so had a quick bounce!... More
