This is a fantastic b&b. Cath and Steve are perfect hosts. The weather was gorgeous and sat in their immaculate gardens with cups of coffee. The breakfast was everything you needed to start you on your day and very well cooked. We had the kingsize bedroom which was a good size. Bathroom small but adequate. Lots of hot water and...

Stayed here overnight with my husband. It was lovely. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, the hosts were friendly and the breakfast was fine. There were restaurants and pubs near by, and it was just off the motorway. A lovely little gem of a find. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Stayed 2 nights Fri & Sat April 2014. Steve and Cathy looked after Karon and I from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The B&B is immaculate throughout, the smaller details such as complimentary tea, coffee and fresh towels, replenished daily. Of course the breakfast (with the food of the gods 'haggis') just the best. No gripes...

But that is the only thing that is plain. We just stayed one night on our way up to Scotland. Catherine and Stephen were quite friendly and helpful with everything. The room...
