Superb, wish I'd booked more days here.
Superbly appointed room presented to an excellent level of cleanliness and comfort. Covid 19 precautions are at a standard to give complete assurance of hygienic safety. Gail and Ross are the ideal hosts, good knowledge of local and more widely available sight seeing/places worth visiting. The room guide is very comprehensive, well worth studying as to the best means of accessing tourist areas. Restauration guide is useful too.

Lovely location.
Property was lovely and well presented. Breakfast options were good. Only negative is the bed in our room was a double. Would dearly love to see a queen size bed instead but there may be room constraints.

This was a family-run bed and breakfast with a contemporary style. Food at breakfast was excellent and the hostess provided lots of good information about the area. She is enthusiastic about her new venture and it shows in her attitude and service. My sisters and I stayed there in early October and were quite satisfied.
