Sue is a charming hostess of a wonderful property. Atholwood is beautifully located. Excellent and extensive gardens in all directions and from the main house wonderful views over the estuary. Breakfast very pleasant. Our issue lies with our agent who booked us the gatehouse not the main property. The gatehouse is a fine accommodation if you are a group or... More

This was a perfect place to stay for us. Sarah and Ian were great hosts and we very much appreciated being upgraded to the apartment.

Lovely and warm rooms. Breakfast to order is no trouble. Looks like you are miles from anywhere but you aren't. That's the beauty of this place. Wonderful and friendly hosts that are very happy to guide you on close by places to see.

We had a delightful stay in this amazing B&B! We enjoyed the swimming pool and lounging in the well kept gardens. The hosts really cared about the accommodation and could not do enough for us or the other guests we met. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Thanks for a great and memorable stay!

As a solo traveler, I am always searching for safe, comfortable lodging in picturesque locations with convenient access to scenic sights. Atholwood is just such an establishment.

Having a great time at Atholwood. Sarah and Ian are most friendliest hosts. Their accommodations are beautifully presented and are of a high standard. And the views are second to none, a nice glass of wine watching the tide roll back into shore.

We recently arrived at Atholwood to be met at the door by Sarah who graciously said we have been upgraded to the main house units (although all are great).
