Jeff and Jacqui Kelly are consumate hosts. Their attention to comfort and detail is second to none. We have been staying with them on and off for many years whenever we need a break from the same business here at Millgate House. Being in the same field we know how demanding it is running a successful guest house. Jaqui's food is inventive,beautifully presented, zingy and with no hint of"cleverness"...just good! She did earn a Michelin Star when running her restaurant in Edinburgh. Jeff is front of house which he is masterful at doing.
He has a wry sense of humour, a dry wit, an eye for every detail and can "blather" away knowledgeably on most subjects. Jeff loves candlelight...candles dotted everywhere for dinner.
When it comes to wine his expertise is terrific. He carefully matches food and wine with Jaqui's delicious dishes.Above all it is the warmth of these two and their passion for food,wine and hospitailty which makes it such a superb place to visit. Breakfast is taken looking out across a dew drenched lawn with morning sunlight jumping on the burn beyond.
I hesistate to recommend Edenwater House only because I fear it will be fully booked next time I call. Bliss!
