Great B&B - Highly Recommended
Excellent stay. Fiona is so welcoming. Superb rooms with amazing views. Added bonus of a pool. During these strange covid times, pool use was staggered - which worked really well, it felt like your own private pool. All in all a great B&B that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. I look forward to returning.
