Greg and Jessica were lovely hosts. They made us feel so welcome it is a shame we had to rush off in the morning to a whale-watching trip. I'm sure the breakfast would have been marvellous. However, Jessica kindly made us up a packed breakfast to take with us which was so thoughtful and allowed us to enjoy the whales without hunger pangs. Jessica even got up to see us off.
The location was wonderful, sandwiched between mountains and sea. I'd recommend a walk under the stars. I saw shooting stars and the Aurora Borealis!
Lovely hosts. Lovely location. Such a shame we stayed only one night - I didn't have time to give the port decanter the attention it deserved!
