Without doubt the best bed and breakfast place I have ever stayed in. Very friendly, clean throughout and very good value for money. Cannot believe it has been given a silver award by English tourist board - it should be gold! Would thoroughly recommend the Sandpiper to anyone visiting the area.

Cannot thank Russell, Helen & Laura enough during our stay. The room which we stayed in (Room 7) was fantastic, roomy & airy with great views. Could not fault the choice at breakfast and evening meal. Would definitely recommend the guest house to friends and family and definitely planning our visit next year. Thanks again 😊😊

A comfortable and very pretty place to stay. I booked after seeing some pictures of the rooms and I wasn't disappointed. The location is quiet but still close enough to everything that walking is no trouble.

Everything was lovely,clean, comfortable, with everything we could have needed in the room. Breakfast was excellent . The table was set with care and the choice of food was very good. Staff made us feel very welcome. Parking was easy and it was a short step to the town and harbour.
