          We overnight end at this delightful guest house. We were greeted by the friendly hostess and shown around. The room is very comfortable and the whole place is very clean and tidy. Breakfast also has gluten free options. A lovely stay.

          The guesthouse is cosy, clean and convenient. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast was first class. The rooms vary in size but they are generous and private with plenty of places to relax in the shade with a cool drink.
