Stayed in the mini heatwave of the mid weekend in April, fabulous stay, Kath and Ed are very welcoming, all staff are friendly, breakfasts are fabulous.

If you have ever been worried about a B and B, this is one I would return to time and time again, already booked a 4 days stay over Xmas.

We stayed at the downs for a short break with our kids and found a very warm welcome with clean well preesnted accomodation. The service and quality was excellent, whilst the suroundings were contempory the attention to customer satisfaction was outstanding to todays standards.
We have booked for August and really looking forward to our stay.
