Have just returned from my first visit to West Manse and the entire visit must be recorded in superlatives. Chris and Pete are the best of hosts. It took me a while, on the first day, to get used to the fact that there were no rules, except their desire to make you feel welcome and at home. Pete is...

Have just returned from my sixth visit to West Manse in three years - what else do I need to say? Everything that has been said in other reviews applies to each of my visits. The welcome, the food, the decor, the comfort levels in every room (and I have stayed in them all😀), nothing is left to chance. Chris...

I've wanted to stay at West Manse for years but it never worked out before. Hearing about a cancellation, we jumped at the chance to spend 3 nights there and I sewed to my hearts content while my husband played golf and had time to read and relax. Chris and Peter are very welcoming hosts and strive to make your...

I absolutely love this place and have only been once so far. Can't wait to go back. Amazing hosts, beautiful house/location and wonderful food. Sewing all day and evening with like minded people and relaxing in front of the log fire when having a break. Heaven.

Lovely welcome. Superb home cooking. Professional help, at all times, for quilting. Can't wait to go back. Would recommend this highly to anyone as a bed and breakfast alone, never mind the quilting aspect.

Last year, stuck in a cancer hospital with no hair and little hope, I needed to buy my 27-year old daughter a birthday present. A leaflet about West Manse Quilt Retreats provided the perfect solution, as a long weekend of uninterrupted quilting is her idea of bliss. Do they do vouchers? Yes. So, if I didn't make it, my girl...
