Just back from a stay in this fabulous B&B. Lorna and Noel are excellent hosts, they are so welcoming and the rooms and breakfasts are all 5 star.

Had a great two night stay, great accommodation, hosts and location! Amazing breakfast! It was a great place to switch off from the world and although we were only an hour away from home, it felt like we were in a different country! Will definitely be back!
