Mary could not have been more welcoming and patient! As a family with 2 young kids, it can get pretty chaotic at times but Mary was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious (especially the home-made raspberry jam). We had a really lovely stay and would definitely go back.

The breakfasts were delicious with home made jam, marmalade, muesli and fruit salad. I can recommend Mary's poached eggs! As a host Mary is very...

The breakfasts were delicious, and her several types of homemade jam were fantastic! Rose Cottage was very clean and comfortable, and the location provided us with easy access...

Mary's home is a homely place to stay, and she is a very welcoming and thoughtful host: nothing is too much trouble for her. She provided a delicious breakfast, and is very happy to adapt (e.g. vegetarian option or a lighter breakfast on the day when we knew we were going out for a large lunch). She puts a small...
