We had a fabulous overnight stay in this lovely bnb, a warm welcome and the best breakfast ever, they have an award for the Best Breakfast and I couldn't agree more! The bed was lovely and comfy which is always a bonus for us!! There's a super Indian - The Indian Garden about a 20 min walk. Fab Place!!!
