Beautiful room with lovely views. Breakfasts were fantastic with a great choice of food beautifully cooked by Steve. Location was ideal with a wide range of restaurants in easy walking distance. Wonderful walks nearby. Steve and Lesley were great hosts-the latter offering useful running tips to my partner. Hope to return.
