    The location was perfect - right next to the sea. Stunning views. Friendly staff. Very helpful. Amazing seal sanctuary too. Beds were very comfortable, we had a great sleep.
  • George
    Amazing location, with the sea in sight and a stone’s throw away. Hosts were absolutely lovely people (also doing great work saving seals!) who went well beyond the call of duty.

We are a small private B&B. Our rooms are not large, but they are cozy and comfortable. The small twin and double are an ideal booking for families/friends as the rooms are very close together. There is a lounge space available to the small twin and double only. The large twin does not have a lounge space. But it does have a sea view. We do not have laundry facilities on site but we are able to do laundry for guests. There are no televisions in any of the rooms. Bedrooms are a place to relax and sleep. There is a television in the lounge. There is internet, but it is very slow and intermittent. There is plenty of garden space to wander around in, take a walk up the campsite and enjoy the sea views which are spectacular. There is a short walk down to our bay/beach, enjoy watching the seals and birds. We DO NOT serve evening meals. And there are no kitchen facilities available. There are many places to eat, the closest being only a five minute drive away. CHECK-IN CLOSES AT 8PM, MAKE SURE YOU ARE HERE BY THAT TIME, REGARDLESS, OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR BOOKING.
