"Wonderful place to stay"
Two nights on the island, almost 48 hours of peace and beauty, you could easily stay longer. Visited the bird centre, south lighthouse. Borrowed the bikes available from the house, and the kayaks. Two delicious breakfasts, one evening meal and tea and scones when we arrived. Bed was comfy, shower good and hot. Great position for exploring the island. Pub, restaurant and cafe close by. Hilary and Alan did everything they could to make our stay very special. You really should visit them. Read less
Likes:
Watching the seals, kayaking with the seals. Bird watching, seeing lots of puffins. Cycling around the island, it's hilly! Laying in bed looking at the sea. Enjoying the peace and quiet.

"it's like staying with friends"
I arrived there and was welcomed like a good friend. And it remained like this for the rest of my stay. They are both very nice and helpful, always open for a little chat. And they have many stories of the island and people to tell. They also do great evening meals for a good price. Then, all guests sit together and exchange their experiences with each other and Alan and Hillary. The house is very charming, so are the rooms. I would definitely stay with them again! Read less

We have equipped the bed and breakfast with couples and with children in mind and there are plenty of books and games should the weather disappoint. As a family you can explore the beach and check out the many rock pools that litter the coast of the island. You can discover the many sea creatures that inhabit the diverse pools. Then gather your beach paraphernalia- think buckets and spades, water wings and fishing nets....the list goes on.
