Beautiful place with amazing hosts
This beautiful B&B is on a hill overlooking the coast. The family room we were in was very spacious, modern, and warm. Breakfast was delicious, but most of all were the amazing hosts. You couldn't find nicer and more generous hosts than Jane and Richard. Not only do I recommend this place, I think you'd be amiss if you stayed anywhere else.

Friendly, comfortable and clean! We really enjoyed our brief stay with Jane and Richard. Lovely room big enough for a family of four. Fantastic bathroom, plenty of hot water. Comfy beds with nice quality bed linen, got a great sleep. Delicious breakfasts. Some tips about places to go and some maps thrown in. I would definitely recommend.
