I would have to say that hands down this was my favorite B&B that we stayed in. Ms. Margaret greeted us with tea and biscuits. We had a fantastic afternoon conversing with both of them and another guest from Germany. I learned so much about the area and farming, as Tom is a retired farmer. Very dear couple and they love what they do. The views from the bedroom are breathtaking. The gardens in the front yard and the sea, nothing beats it. Breakfast fantastic!



I can't say enough about Tom and Margaret and their overwhelming kindness. We got in terribly late and unfortunately, got into a car accident on our way. Tom came to the site of the accident and waited with us until the police were done, by the time we got to the house, it was after midnight! Margaret was so sweet, told us to sleep in as much as we needed and then gave us a lovely breakfast. The room is comfortable, the area is beautiful, the food was tasty but NOTHING compares to Tom and Margaret's kindness in going above and beyond to help us. They even drove us to the bus stop the next day! I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Ms. Margaret was top notch. We so enjoyed our visit with her. She was more than gracious to us. We enjoyed her homemade scones (best ever) and tea in a dining room that overlooks the water and spectacular views. The room was comfy and clean, the view from the bedroom was gorgeous.

Everything was perfect! The view was amazing, it was peaceful and the accommodations were top notch. Ms. Margaret was so helpful, our car broke down and she helped us with the arrangements. We really enjoyed ourselves and would stay again.
