Thank-you so much John and Jupp. You have a fabulous B&B with beautiful rooms and great food. It was a great weekend! The location just as you enter town but an easy stroll from the high street is ideal!

My partner and I stayed here for a few days in September and found it a real haven at a great price. It's immaculately kept and tastefully decorated by the owners John and Jupp and, as it's their home, they take pride in everything from cooking to cleaning. The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious - we both had the full...

Fifty-five reviews and 100% 5 stars tell you that this is not your run of the mill B’n’B. But, as the owners state on their web-site, it’s not for everyone. No under-12s and no telly was an attraction for me. And who needs a telly when there are wonderful views from the bedrooms. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed...

You will receive a very warm and friendly welcome here, with tea, home made cake and biscuits. Our room still had the old character, but with modern luxury. Absolutely spotless. The views from the bedroom window are stunning, you could just sit there all day! - Jupp and John (the hosts) would'nt mind. If you need anything, just ask. Breakfasts...
