Another visit to this spacious and comfortable country bed and breakfast. Carole's attention and supply of wholesome food as good as ever. Would recommend to anyone visiting the Ards peninsula. Beautiful views over open country side. The sea can be seen on both sides of the house. Excellent beds. All you need.
