Barbara and her lovely dog, Heidi made us very welcome in her beautiful home. We had the Rose Room which had a four poster bed and lovely period furnishings. Everything was supplied from toiletries to tea and biscuits! The gardens and grounds were also very pretty, and we could sit outside on the veranda and enjoy the views. Barbara was very helpful on advising us on where to eat and what to see, and she has an excellent sense of humour! The breakfasts were out of this world- fresh fruit, local honey and yogurt, Barbara's own stewed prunes and preserves and the best cooked breakfast ever. Would definitely recommend this B&B to everyone.
