Settled at the end of a picturesque town with only one road into town, is this country gables country inn, on a Saturday evening you are lucky enough to be treated to a home cooked meal. The owner and all staff are all amazing, making you truly feel like a guest and not a client. This is worth a visit!

Two friends from overseas and myself stayed for two nights last week and all I can say is amazing. Our host Jill went out of her way to make our stay just perfect. We arrived on a day when no restaurants were open for dinner and Jill made special arrangements for us. Thank you Jill!

We expected more, nobody about most of the time. The room ( the honeymoon room) was not very nice, very small, thank goodness we weren't on our honeymoon, otherwise I think our marriage would have been over. The breakfast was very good.Im sorry but I can not recommend Green Gables.

Green Gables is picture pretty with beautiful interior, neat, clean, well equipped and good value for money. The meals are excellent, beautifully presented and very tasty. Gill, our hostess, was very hospitable. We loved the old world charm of this place.
