Lovely bed and breakfast very convenient location for the town. Have been staying here for several years and can't fault it. Friendly hosts Nigel and Debra made us feel very welcome. Lovely room and great breakfast with the great added touch of homemade afternoon cakes. Looking forward already to our stay next year!

Very impressed with the modern-style room with all the mod-cons like a flat-screen tv. Debra and Nigel were the ideal hosts and gave great advise when we asked them where's best to go in the evening. The cooked breakfast was also perfectly done and definitely set us up for the day. Thanks Nigel and Debra!
