We found all of them at Wentworth Heights. The house itself is cosy, clean and well equipped and both Diane & Barry couldn't...

We enjoyed our stay. Diane took the time to research gluten-free restaurants nearby. Very restful, as we were on our own after fishing was done and we holed up in the room after dinner most evenings. Excellent shower pressure. Rooms aren't soundproof but are nice overall.

This Bed and Breakfast goes above and beyond. We felt so fortunate to be able to experience the warmest hospitality of Dianne and Barry.

Had a wonderful time staying with Diane and Barry in Wentworth Heights. The rooms and breakfast were great and they were very welcoming hosts. A session on the river with Barry as guide was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon too. Highly recommended.

So glad i chose to stay here! the warmest welcome, comfiest room, and the best spread ever at the breakfast table. The views over Gore were breathtaking, and even the cows came to say hello at breakfast time! We had planned to leave at approx 9:30am to get on the road but ended up chatting with them until 11:30, oops!...
