We have just returned from a three night stay at Holmhead and it was most enjoyable. The setting is idyllic. I particularly loved the peace and quiet. The decor is a little dated but the warm hospitality and friendliness of the owners Pauline and Brian more than makes up for this. Pauline went out of her way to give us plenty of helpful information about the surrounding area. The food was fabulous, I've never had a better Breakfast anywhere! We will definitely be going back.
