    Fabulous guest house!

    Fabulous guest house! Vivien is the perfect host, welcoming, friendly and gave us great tips to help us get the best from our trip. From where to eat/ drink, things to do and how to get there, she's very knowledgeable. Continental breakfast was amazing. Everything was fresh and lovely quality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't think twice about returning!

    Beautiful guest house

    The guest house was really clean and comfortable. Breakfast was continental with an array of fruits, cereals, cold meats and cheeses a welcome break from a full English breakfast. The host was very friendly and informative about the area. Although about 15-20 minutes walk from the centre the walk was pleasant taking in the historic buildings in the area.

    Room was far too small with little storage. Every effort had been made to provide other facilities.
