We can't speak highly enough of this lovely B&B. We have loved it here. Beautiful room - super bathroom & lovely breakfasts. Clare & David are brilliant hosts. Today we did a full day based on Dave's ideas - we followed it to the letter. He knows the area & his advise was better than any tourist off...
