We immediately felt at home. We did not want to leave. For my husband and I, it was like visiting our grandparents' house when we were kids. The views were stunning.

What a lovely review! Thank you. I can't see your name on your review but I think from your description that it may be one of our Bay View properties. I'm thrilled you had a great time and that it proved to be cathartic. You're welcome back any time. Kindest regards, Georgie

Thankyou for your nice review. Sorry i can't say your name since its listed as anonomous. You must have stayed in one of the spa rooms in the main B&B house though since there are three rooms with big spa baths. Although the Admirals View 4 has a lovely big normal bath too ....??? Anyway thankyou ... Melissa Melissa
