Visiting here for a night as we see our family in Stranrear. The beds are very comfortable, the house is absolutely beautiful and the breakfast is not only sizeable but very delicious! Marilyn, the owner, is also lovely and nothing is too much trouble! Fantastic place and I'm sure we will be back soon :)

This is an exceptional B&B in a caringly restored manse with great attention to period detail. The rooms are very comfortable, interesting, clean and with free wifi. The hosts are welcoming and helpful and there is an outstanding breakfast complete with linen napkins.
