The price was reasonable and included a cooked breakfast. The Lodge is located on the main (bendy) road but you may drive past it. It... More

Located just outside town with a narrow, almost missed driveway! Beautiful property with well appointed rooms and great wifi. We had dinner and breakfast in the B&B and both were delicious. Room was a spacious with a desk area and lots of seating, very comfortable. A lovely quiet, peaceful spot with a great host. Would definitely recommend this B&B.

Lovely, quiet, clean place. Run by a nice guy who was the best cook, the food was all really good and reasonably priced. Not a cheap weekend but could not complain about anything and will recommend for a couples get away anytime.
