    “very pleasant stay, welcoming and professional”

    We used the B&B for a close location to activities. Clean and comfortable accommodation and a great selection for breakfast. Great cooked breakfast. Vast selection of leaflets for local activities. Free WiFi. No curfew to be back in the evening, felt very homely. Great location with lovely views. Very friendly and welcoming host. Would recommend.
