The room was very clean and spacious with a very comfortable bed and a little seating area. You couldn't hear any other guests even though it was full! Breakfasts were great too with a...

Very cute townhouse B&B, full of interesting little features and rooms done to a very high standard. Lovely hosts and a great breakfast selection. Good location if you are happy walking, 20 minutes in to town but is across nice parkland. Would recommend without hesitation.
