Bought the accommodation on an auction and it was such a stunning purchase. We absolutely love the place!! As a couple it's a nice treat even if you live in PE. Breakfast is good and is served quickly.

James was extremely welcoming on our arrival and had upgraded our room which was great! The room was spacious, nicely decorated and very warm which was nice to have when we stayed during the colder month of August! A short, but very sweet stay- wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed another of the lovely breakfasts.

In a quiet suburb but relatively close to the airport, this B&B is much more than a typical B&B-- spacious grounds, great attention to detail and the kind of hosts that could give lessons in how to run a B&B. Well done.

Reviewed 16 July 2016 via mobile

So carefully and meticulously are the rooms prepared for guests. They really do try to make this a home away from home experience. I would give them five out of five had it not been for the disappointing breakfast service which felt managed as a school diner.
