Great place t spend the weekend. You get pampered with fresh scones and tea on arrival. a great breakfast and spotlessly clean accommodation. We stayed on the ground floor. maybe next time I would choose the first floor. Reduces floor noise.

We spent one night here as a group of five adults and one child. We were welcomed by Mary and straight away offered tea and coffee.

Although we had trouble finding the B&B we were welcomed with tea and scones on arrival. We enjoyed watching the dairy cattle arrive and leave for their evening milking. The hostess was quite willing to chat about the farm and the area in general which we found very interesting. Wonderful breakfast included homemade jams and eggs from the farm.
