Terrific location. Spotless rooms bright and sunny. Breakfast was the cherry on the cake. Extremely warm welcome with a cup of tea - how very English. Car parking facility. Thank you from Ed and Faye - Melbourne.

Owners have re decorated many parts, replaced lighting and up graded plumbing. Excellent finishes all round and, as always, spotlessly clean. David and Tracey make you feel so welcome. This is a first class B&B and the Breakfast is superb.
