Faultless service in quiet and pleasant surroundings. Afforded the privacy of the whole annex despite there only being the two of us. The breakfasts were excellent with all the choice you could want. Overall would strongly recommend it.

“There are two rooms: a double and a twin. I had the Twin, which is in the eves. The headroom was limited, (I am 6' 1"), but okay. On the first night it rained really hard and it was noisy as I was very close to the roof. My Dad slept like a log in the double room ( which is on the ground floor)”
