Having fallen in love with this house on their website, I could hardly wait to get here. It was even more spacious and delightful than I had been prepared for, and Jilly was marvelous. The very quiet location was soothing, but close enough to the town for quick access to shops and restaurants. Wonderful base for touring this beautiful area... More

Well appointed spacious room. Attentive friendly hosting. A great central location from which to tour. Just away from the bustle but still only a 5 minute walk into town. Stunning views. 1st time but won't be our last

I must say we were a little concerned that we might feel odd staying in such a small guest house but can certainly reassure readers that this isn't the case. We had our own separate access to our room which was great. The room itself was really very comfortable and was cleaned impeccably throughout. The ensuite bathroom was top notch... More
