Absolutely fabulous guest house run by very friendly owners, Colin and Sandra. Rooms are exceptionally comfortable and immaculately clean. The breakfasts were lovely and are cooked to order with additional daily specials offered. The shortbread biscuits in our room were delicious and we later found out these had been baked by Colin. Willance House is located on a quiet road... More
