A bright, pristine house with an interesting historical theme to it. The owners made sure that all of our needs were looked after, serving a very tasty breakfast also the next morning. Would definitely recommend it!

We stayed here at the last minute as our booked accommodation fell through. Margaret could not have been more welcoming and helpful. She even helped us find accommodation for the next leg of our trip and lots of tips on the local area. We got a family room which was lovely, very clean and spacious. The house itself has an interesting history and lots of collected artifacts worth checking out. Breakfast was outstanding, and my kids still talk about the lovely experience they had. What started as a bit of a nightmare for us with the original booked accommodation turned into a lovely experience thanks to Margaret and AlanAdventurer607787
