We spent a very comfortable night at Baytree House on the recommendation of our friends, who were also staying there. A warm welcome from Geraldine, Joe and the two dogs and a delicious breakfast the next morning. Within easy walking distance of all the town's main attractions with convenient street parking.

Breakfast was excellent...
