Liz and Evan are fabulous and generous hosts and understand the commitment required to run a luxury B&B. The little extras are 5-star and the hospitality best to none. Would absolutely recommend, is the sort of B&B to sit and breathe and rest and soak up the views, thanks again Liz and Evan we had a fabulous stay and highly recommend.

This is a truly lovely cottage hideaway, very comfortable, well equipped and within easy reach of the caves. Liz and Evan were very charming and welcoming hosts. Liz's breakfasts and dinners were delicious. After a busy day of sightseeing we would thoroughly recommend the comfy hammocks on the veranda to unwind over a glass of wine and enjoy the amazing views.

The cottage is comfortable and our hosts delightful. Breakfast was delicious with home made preserves and bread along with fresh fruit. We chose a continental breakfast but Liz will make what you like. We also enjoyed the option of dinner with Evan and Liz. She is an excellent cook and we highly recommend this option. The cottage is secluded with breathtaking views of the valley.
