My partner and I stayed here for a very pleasant couple of nights. From the moment we arrived to the day we left we were made to feel most welcome. The room/en-suite were both gorgeous and very nicely decorated. Great advice received for a drive around on a very rainy day and the most delicious breakfast and home baked cakes....

I have stayed at this guesthouse previously on business but this time I came with friends. It never fails to impress me. The level of service is better than some 5 star hotels I have stayed in. The home made cakes and biscuits are great when you're turn back at the end of the day. The freshly home made muffins...
