A very pleasant visit, our room which overlooked the church grounds, was modern, light and airy. The breakfast was very good and parking conveniently placed at the rear of the house.The Lake and Town Centre were a short walk away.

I recently stayed here in the suite. Despite the many stairs the view from the top quickly make you forget the amount of steps you have to climb. The owners are very friendly and welcoming.

This was our 3rd stay here, we loved it just as much as the last time and booked again for next year. Richard & Christine are brilliant hosts who keep an imaculate guest house with a personal feel that makes it like home away from home. Looking forwards to seeing you all (Poppy too) again next year.
