Have just returned after staying for 2 nights at this lovely house. The bed was really comfortable and the view out of the window was stunning. You could see to the Bristol Channel (approx 35 miles away we were told). Lovely breakfast and the hosts are really welcoming. Would definitely recommend to get away from it all.
