Peter and David were amazing hosts who opened their magnificent BandB to us. The attention they have given to the house wasevident when we arrived in the evening. Their restoration was not only in excellent taste, but in ecological sensitivity and functionality. Morning allowed us to see the beauty of their garden from the breakfast room where we feasted on a gourmet quality meal. Their insight in activities in the area was excellent

Loved the big cosy sitting room and warm welcome with a hot drink. Fantastic. Really well equipped room and bathroom with lovely shower gel and shampoo and real luxury of a fresh face flannel. Bliss. Would have preferred separate breakfast table but it was fine and nice other guests. Parking is slightly tight!
