Adela was more than accomodating. We had a lovely room with an ensuite and then a sitting room off this. The conservatory and balcony was available for an early evening drink. Nearby was so much to see and savour. Breakfast was up there with the best hotel in the world - fresh lucious fruit, smoked salmon and fresh coffee.

For a B&B they don't come any better. We stayed there recently with two granddaughters and will certainly stay again when the opportunity arises. Rooms very well furnished and beds really comfy and spotlessly clean. Adela's breakfast is a cracking one with plenty of fresh fruit, nothing out of a can, and cooked breakfast just as you request it. Shearwater...
