Room contained everything we needed plus a baby changing table for a family. Breakfast was lovely, served in the dinning room down stairs. Top...

Had a wonderful overnight stay in a comfortable bed, in a spotlessly clean room with a view, lovely thick towels with everything you need in the bathroom and a short distance to local shops. We had an excellent breakfast with all you could want.Couldn't ask for more. Outstanding value, with delightful owners. Will definitely return.
