A little gem
A last minute booking.
Why was there a vacancy. I would have expected this small high spec B&B with such a friendly and welcoming owner to be repeat fully booked for months in advance. No question we will return the next time we are planning to visit the area.
St Valentine's Night Stay
This was our second stay at The Knowe in under a year.
We didn't expect anything less than a superb stay and naturally, we weren't disappointed. There were several nice touches to our St Valentine's night stay and these were greatly appreciated. Karen ensures that you have a superb stay and nothing is too much bother. On Karen's recommendation, we ate out at The Clachan in St John's Town of Dalry (about 8 miles/15 minutes to the south) and the food was delicious, in a lovely atmosphere. The Knowe is a B&B you do find very difficult to leave. Thanks once again, and we'll be back.
