Room was well appointed. Breakfast was outstanding and made to order. And all of the little personal pieces made it feel like you were...

As mentioned by most reviewers, the harbour views are stunning and the setting is very atmospheric. Breakfast was delicious, especially the homemade marmalade. It was hard to...

Thanks for the lovely words and you are always so welcome down here - cant wait until you decide to move down! Will shortly be deep in making whole range of marmalade which should be ready when you get down next. Today's useless piece of information - there are 37,500 post boxes in the UK! Take care
