I stayed at this B&B for 4 nights with my son who had local work experience. I was able to drop my bags of early 09:30, after dropping my son at work.
I had advised Liz and Graeme of my dairy and wheat intolerance and that I was happy with the standard breakfast of bacon and eggs. Liz and Graeme made enquiries with their local butcher and later purchased some Gluten Free sausages. Upon my return later that day I also found Gluten free biscuits in my room. The following day I enjoyed a full breakfast together with Gluten free fruit bread. It was heaven.
The family room was exceptional and has plenty of storage space for clothes for the week. It has a private bathroom off a small corridor, within the family suite. The bathroom is beautifully clean and the power shower is hard enough to wake up any teenager early in the morning!
The house is spotless and a very warm welcome was received each morning, although Graeme seemed to live in cupboards and just appear from them!! The bed is very comfortable and there were no complaints from my son either. There are also beautifully kept gardens too, which residents have the use off.
My husband joined me for a day and was disappointed he was not able to enjoy a stay at the house due to work commitments.
My son and I were made to feel very welcome throughout our stay and nothing seemed too much trouble for Liz or Graeme. I was allowed access to their kitchen to make my son's packed lunch every evening. again, they went out of their way to help with this.
Liz and Graeme are two of the most friendly people I have had the pleasure of meeting and are very passionate about their house and business. I cannot recommend this B&B enough.
I only live 1 1/2 hours drive away but will be returning soon.
Thank you once again for making us both feel very welcome and providing fantastic service.
