We booked a three day stop over for a family wedding. It was a good choice. Tim & Hilary have a professional product geared to their guests' needs. It is homely, comfortable and nicely appointed, from the home made shortbread on the room tray to beautiful breakfasts cooked to order by Tim. Can recommend this B&B with sea views to... More

Very friendly hosts, absolutely excellent breakfast, the twin room was nice and clean, but without bathroom, bathroom was only on the same floor. There were no wishes left, when you finished breakfast

The facilities were excellent, a little "traditional" for my taste but I wouldn't let this detract from an excellent stay. We stayed here for one night at the end of our holiday where we had stayed in another B&B and Hawthorn house made me appreciate just how much the small things make a difference. Homemade shortbread in the room, fresh... More

We drove for 6 1/2 hours to reach this B&B and it was worth it just for the view alone. We were warmly welcomed by Tim who showed us to our room which had the same wonderful view of the sea. On the tea tray there was a little box of home made shortbread - a lovely touch. Tim had... More

A year since we stayed here. Took a last-minute booking, delighted to get 'our' room. What can we say that we haven't noted before ? Hosts who go out of the way to ensure a stay has everything - and breakfasts which remain our standard measure for "the best". Interesting conversations with other visitors from all over.

A fabulous retreat after a long drive. The property has a wonderful seafront location and fine views. Tim and Hillary were friendly, helpful and informative. My single room (double bed) was comfortable and breakfast was fabulous. All at a fabulous price.
