Stayed here for a weekend in June as my husband was celebrating his 60th birthday. Colin a Sue the owners were the most loveliest couple, they made us so welcome. The room we stayed in was spotless and the bed very comfortable, breakfast was excellent. We had a most enjoyable stay and will certainly stay there again.

Just spent weekend at this lovely guest house. Hosts Colin and Sue couldn't do any more to help, very attentive hosts. Breakfast was great and as we had to leave extra early on Monday morning due to work commitments they put on tea/toast cereal etc and even offered to cook breakfast out of the usual breakfast timings.
