The perfect place for a relaxing trip. Rooms are beautiful and exceptionally clean with a great standard of comfort. The views from the dining/livingroom on the upper floor are unbelievable, well worth staying at this b&b for them alone! Julie was very helpful and gave us a great welcome making us feel at home. Not to mention her cooked breakfast... More

The rooms (all ensuite) are always spotless, comfortable, well maintained and the breakfasts are first class, providing a good choice of food and... More

Bedroom and the facilities spotless and as comfortable as a 5* hotel. Breakfast in the bright upstairs lounge was spot on and the views are everything you would expect in the 'heilans' including one morning,a deer and her foal at the edge of the forest.. Thanks Julie for making my brother and I feel at home
