We were made to feel so welcome. The breakfasts were also very good. The view from our room was outstanding and we highly recommend to others. Also the complimentary glass of wine was much appreciated.

This B&B has great hosts, a lovely room with all expected comforts, and the most fantastic view. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good base for the local area.

Breakfast was substantial, and feeding the alpacas in the morning with an added bonus!
