Yellowwoods is a hidden gem, crisp white linen and very clean. I felt like i was in a Southern Sun Hotel. Beautifully decorated rooms and breakfast area. Very comfortable for anyone and everyone and the cherry on top is a very hospitable host!

Very upmarket bed and breakfast. Secure with secure parking (even came down after breakfast and my Land Rover had been washed!). Hands on by the owners who are excellent hosts and really make the place have a home from home feel to it. Highly recommended.
