Room lovely and really clean and beautifully presented. Good sized double with good cotton bedding. The guest house has everything you need and is only a couple of minutes walk from the front. Although the guest house is fantastic the best bit about The Laurels is the hosts, Sue and Colin are lovely and make you feel right at home!... More
