Nice and isolated top of the Hill which allowed me to relax - Sean the owner is very friendly and hospitable. I have very particular food needs and these were catered for expertly. The main bedroom on suite where I stayed is very special and I would definitely take my wife if I travelled through the area.

Another great overnight stay. Beautiful large bedroom with enormous bathroom,(The Elephant Room), spotlessly clean. Sean, with great culinary skills and sense of humor, is the cherry on the top. An experience not to be missed. I'll be back.

He also prepared us a truly delicious three course meal which we enjoyed on the deck. As a B&B it is very well equipped, comfortable, impeccably clean and cosy. With a... More
