Stayed for three nights in July. On arrival we received a warm and genuine welcome from the friendly owner Andrew (who reminded me of Stephen Fry). During our stay the owners struck the perfect balance of being available when needed but leaving guests to come and go as they wished without feeling monitored.
We had the Moray room which was very clean and spacious. It had a comfortable bed and gorgeous quilt together with good en-suite facilities and high quality complimentary toiletries and bathrobes.
Hillcrest is an attractive older house with considerable character. Our room overlooked the garden which was very neat and tidy. The bay window had beautiful scenic views. The elegant lounge is very well furnished with a wide selection of books, games and useful maps. It would be very cosy in winter.
A good range of breakfast choices is offered and we found the cooked breakfast to be excellent. There is a wide choice of local jams and preserves to sample (a nice change from ubiquitous unimaginative plastic pots).
Hillcrest and the surrounding area is a perfect location for a peaceful and relaxing break.
