"Hello. I'm the Head Housekeeper.  My staff (the owners) live here too.  They will serve you breakfast, but not until after I have had mine.""Lovely cottage in a central but quiet/secluded location with lots of places to visit and sights to see as well as being ideally situated for an overnight stay before or after ferry trips further afield. Host is very friendly and helpful as well as being very accommodating to some last minute issues we had with our travel arrangements. Hope to visit again."

Joan was an amazing host and the cottage was absolutely stunning. Good breakfast too. The Chance Inn next door do superb gin and tonics (try the rhubarb gin with ginger tonic). Would highly recommend.

Joan’s home is absolutely beautiful and very cosy. It’s tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. We slept really well, thanks to how peaceful the house and area is and the blackout blind. The village is pretty and quiet but close to local towns. Joan is friendly and funny, a …
