Lovely bed and breakfast ran by such a warm and friendly couple. We were in the area for a family wedding at the High Lodge about a mile up the road. Not too difficult to get to if you don't drive as there is a railway station nearby. A struggle to find any taxi's however, so if you need any...

I have read some of the reviews on this B&B, frankly I don`t know what some people expect. We have been here twice and both times we haven`t wanted to leave it is a proper home from home. It`s clean, comfortable, the food is excellent and the host`s are like friends you have known for years. They carn`t do enough...

Great Hosts, fantastic breakfasts, the cottage is quirky, our room was called the hobbits and was very apt, the door was about 4 feet tall, my husband found it easier to crawl in and out but once inside the room was lovely and it all added to the fun.

This was our second stay and we will be back, wonderful hosts and the breakfast was great. Would recommend holly tree cottage to everyone, although in a main road this does not spoil your stay. Plenty of parking

A wonderful welcoming couple who made my stay as comfortable as possible. I almost felt like one of the family! I would certainly recommend this lovely home. A very comfortable bed and a super long bath with plenty of hot water was always ready for me after long coastal walks. And fresh milk! No little long life cartons here! Jolly...

A nice guesthouse . The stay slightly soured by the pricing. Sixty pounds a night is not cheap, but the first night they were unable to provide breakfast (I was told this in advance) and said I would receive a rebate. This turned out to be five pounds (not enough to get a sausage sandwich and cup of coffee locally).No...

Thanks for your review. We are sorry you felt your stay was soured by our pricing. £60 is a very reasonable rate around here for a double ensuite room. This is a very popular tourist area, and we are certainly the most reasonable B and B around this area. £5 is always what we deduct/charge for breakfast and we can...
