We had an overnight stay with our 2 small dogs. It was clean, comfortable, nice and roomy with an impressive decor. Would stay again any time.

nice stay

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a few nights. The accommodation was clean and cosy. The owner is a friendly lady was helpful. Bev had everything you would need for breakfast. Which was great. I will say the b&b is some where to go for peace and quite. You are in the middle of no where. If you are happy to wake up to cowes this place is for you. I would recommend taking your food. Closest supermarket is a 25 minute drive.

Excellent hospitality and a very cosy stay

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I as well as our little dog stayed here for 2 nights. The owner is so lovely and amazing to chat to and so helpful with everything. It was an adorable and cute place and well designed out. Our dog stayed in the little fenced off backyard whenever we left, and the owner always ensured our little pooch was always okay while checking over her while we were away. It was also a bonus to walk and explore the big garden around the property. We had an issue with getting sea sick on our 2nd day there and weren't able to see the buchan caves on the same day as we had planned and the owner was so lovely that she allowed us a late checkout the next day with no charge to ensure we could still go and see it, so the next following day we we were able to check out at 4pm to allow us enough time to head up to the buchan caves and back to the accomodation to pick up our dog and then pack up and head home. In addition we loved the extra touches with breakfast supplies provided such as fresh eggs, bacon, bread and milk. We would definitely recommend this accomodation to friends and family and to everyone!
