Guest Information

Having food allergies and a milk intolerance myself, I am very conscious of providing guests with a breakfast menu suited to their dietary requirements. When guests check into our Bed & Breakfast, they are asked about any food preference or intolerances. When you are making your booking, if you wish, please mention any food allergies prior to your arrival. It is important that our guest's dietary needs are met.

When our guests check into the B&B they are given a choice between a Continental breakfast (fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, muffins, pound cakes, etc.) or a full breakfast (bacon and eggs, sausages, eggs, or pancakes, plus fresh fruit, etc.)
