Alison was warm, friendly, welcoming and so helpful. We were going to a wedding so she offered us early check-in that allowed us to get our wedding ready. Her bed and breakfast is beautiful, so homely and comfortable. Our en-suite room was spotless. It was tasteful decorated and furnished. We had everything we needed but I know had we wanted anything else we only would have needed to ask. Breakfast was delicious. Cereals, fruits and yoghurts, fresh juices tea/coffee, toast and a hearty freshly cooked breakfast made this place a 5 star winner. Would absolutely recommend.
