The second time we've had the pleasure of staying here and hopefully not the last. As a party of 7, Mel helped no end with the room arrangements and everything was spot on for us. Great communication, good size rooms, everything you could possibly need at hand and a fantastic breakfast. Home from home!

We had bathrobes, a fan to cool the room and there were even hot water bottles in case the weather changed. Breakfast was delicious and the children enjoyed the pancakes and hot chocolate.We felt that nothing was too much trouble for the...

After seeing the weather forecast was prolonged rain, we decided to scrap camping and searched for a B&B. I found Brandelhow and booked it and we're not disappointed. We received a very warm welcome, our room was spotless and very comfortable. There was more food for breakfast than we could eat, but that kept us going until the evening! The...

We were warmly greeted by Mel and Lainey even though we arrived later than expected, thanks to a flight delay. We also had to leave early in the morning, before breakfast service started. Our gracious hosts got up early to provide us with a continental breakfast before we left. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and...

When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Mel and Lanie, given a variety of breakfast options to select for the next day and shown to our rooms. We were given a parking permit to park on the street outside. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was fantastic, none of the issues with temperature control I've had in...

This is a great cosy little B&B. We arrived from our first day on the C2C route sopping wet and the proprietors gave us a great welcome, took our soaked shoes and showed us to our rooms, which were not big, but very well appointed. We were offered a lush choice of breakfasts to choose from (oak smoked salmon with...

We stayed in the Willow suite in April and were very impressed. Lovely, comfortable B&B with very friendly owners Mel and Lanie, who both made us feel welcome. We would definitely recommend Brandelhow if you're looking for a B&B in the area.
