We stayed at Penny steps for two nights and it was lovely. The room was clean, comfy and had a glorious view of the marina. The breakfast each morning was delicious with plenty to choose from and the hosts John and Emma were warm, friendly and very accommodating. We will definitely be staying there again.

Amazing view from our room. Emma & John are great, warm and welcoming. We arrived as guests and left feeling like we had made friends. The house feels as though you have arrived home, we loved it. Breakfast was lovely, tasty - hot and plenty.

Cannot fault anything at Penny Steps, from the very warm welcome from Emma and John to the house itself. Emma and John couldn't do enough for us , both equally as welcoming, they made our stay feel as though we were staying with good friends. First time of meeting them but left feeling as though we'd known them for years....

Breakfast first rate and pleasantly homely, free car parking provided not too far away in small two storey car park. John and Emma even booked a table for us at The...
