We were amazed at the breath taking view from Castle Farm. In just a short walk we were on the coast watching waves crash in. We really appreciated the tips on what to see and how to get places. Don't miss staying at this B and B.

A very comfortable place to stay. We loved the view of the ocean and the beautiful flowered yard. We had a very delicious breakfast. A little egg yolk on my shirt proved no challenge for Margaret who took me to the kitchen and cleaned my shirt. We enjoyed chatting with Margaret.
