“The most comfortable accommodation that I've ever stayed in, the hosts are so wonderful and welcoming it's almost like you're staying with somebody in your family as opposed to a B&B! The room was perfect - warm and quiet all day/night. The breakfast was incredible. I'd never normally stay in a B&B but I trusted the other glowing reviews and the were all exactly right about Timbers! It should really have a rating of 10 out of 10!! Loved it.”
