Positive Reviews

You'll Get Greeted By Personable Hosts

Guests were very impressed by the friendly attitudes displayed by the hosts of this B&B. It's a family-run establishment, and reviews discussed how the staff were very warm and always ready to have a cup of tea and a chat. At the same time though, guests never felt the behaviour was intrusive.

A Quiet Location with Gorgeous Views

There were numerous reviews that spoke highly of the spectacular views here. The location is a little isolated, but if you're looking for some secluded time away from your usual routine, this property provides it, complete with unforgettable scenery.

The Breakfasts Are Incredible

Guests gave high marks to the breakfasts here and usually struggled to find anything bad to say about how the food was presented or the way it tasted. When staying here, you can expect the hearty breakfasts to help your days get started well.

Negative Reviews

Access to the Parking Area Can Be Tough

Because the car park connects to a narrow road, accessing it can be tough. Reviews specifically mentioned how access from one direction is harder than the other, but didn't give further details. If you are a timid driver, you might find it useful to contact the B&B before your arrival and learn about the car park layout.

The Drive is Very Steep

The B&B is located up a drive that's characterised by a significant incline. This caused a few slight struggles when guests were coming back to the property after being out for walks, and was sometimes initially intimidating for guests in cars.

The Beds Are a Bit Uncomfortable

Although their complaints were minor, some guests said they wished the beds were a little kinder to their spines. Some guests who brought up the issue thought the beds were not firm enough.
