Stayed here for four nights and as bed and breakfast places go it’s right up there with the good ones. I am certain anyone who stays here will not be disappointed.
What makes this place exceptional is Fiona, the hostess. If she offers to cook supper for you and you appreciate excellent food, do not refuse. Her culinary skills are exceptional. She could easily be a serious contender on Masterchef were she ever to consider applying. I enjoyed four mouth watering meals that, dare I say, were better than many I have eaten that have been cooked for me by relatively ‘famous’ chefs. Each of them was a never to be forgotten experience and I really would go back again just for that.
Fiona, and her husband Colin are also, possibly one of the most caring ad thoughtful hosts I have come across on my travels. A cold glass of wine was offered on arrival and was very welcome after an arduous journey – and on mornings when I was leaving too early to have breakfast, Fiona immediately offered to do me a packed breakfast which was splendid too. Bear in mind, most people when I say I will be out too early for breakfast just shrug and say -okay then and offer nothing more.
The property is also beautiful scenically situated in quiet countryside, with an abundance of wildlife and beautiful views, great for families or photographers, and of course ‘foodies’. If I were local, I would certainly want to book a meal with her to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries etc. It wouldn’t need much thinking about and the price is very reasonable too.
