Combine a spacious and comfortable lounge & dining area with a traditional, stylish bathroom, and you have a wonderful suite of private rooms (over two floors) all to yourself. 
You may even relax in the lovely garden, however the spring of 2022 is witnessing  an extension to and remodelling of our garden area.
We include a substantial buffet style breakfast for you each morning and a cooked breakfast menu of local produce is available at a small extra cost. Please ask for menu options beforehand, if you wish.
A complimentary shuttle service is available to transport you to and from the air or sea ports.

New for 2022

As part of our plans to retain safety for our guests during Covid, we binned our 'Guest Information' pack and transferred the information to an easy to clean iPad. 
Guests are welcome to take this on your travels but if you should lose it, you will be asked  to replace it, I'm afraid.
We believe that a picture tells a thousand words, so we choose not to bombard you with words, facts and figures, but simply allow you to enjoy our wonderful images.
 Please come back to us with any questions you may wish to raise.
