“Best B&B we’ve ever stayed at. The room and en-suite were luxurious. Carolyn is a marvelous hostess, nothing was too much trouble for her and oh boy can she cook. The breakfasts were truly sumptuous and her homemade marmalade divine. Don’t hesitate to book it if you can get in, you’re in for a treat”
