I would Visit Again

The accomodation was very clean and tidy, staff friendly and approachable.

A good breakfast was available continental or full English. But disappointed other meals were not available. Though a Pub and a Restaurant are available nearby which serve an excellent meals. We visited during December and the local sites and ammenities were shut down so we are likely to want to revisit in the spring, summer or autumn. The room was a little chilly for our taste but would not be a problem at other times of the year.

lovely location, shame about the grumpy male b & b owner

This is a lovely place to visit, the b & b room was nice, clean and warm.

The lady b & b owner was friendly, she gave additional toast when requested after a tasty cooked breakfast and helped us with the finding a nice beach. The down side to staying here is the grumpy male owner, when checking out I said thanks for which he replied with a grunt and no goodbye. After arriving in the pouring down rain in the pitch black with a 4 month old baby I was told that I had to pay an additional £7 (not breaking the bank i know but it is the principle) for a superior room for my dog to stay in (I stated this in the special requests on late rooms and spoke to the owners directly before hand which I wasn't informed) I feel I had no choice as I was in the middle of no where and had already paid a £30 non refundable deposit with a baby. Please be aware when booking.
