What a cool place! Had a lovely overnight stay in the Baron and Lady Carson room. Decor was immaculate. Had a lovely Full English on the balcony in the morning and the lemon drizzle cake was a real treat! A few minutes walk to the lovely Minnis Bay . The hosts Kat and Spencer were super nice and have lovingly restored every aspect of this amazing house. Looking forward to staying again.

Nathan, thanks so much for your review, lovely to hear that you both enjoyed your stay so much in the Baron and Lady Carson suite. As the weather was so amazing, it was great that you choose to have your breakfast on your private sun terrace, making the most of the beautiful weather and the facilities your suite had to offer. It was a pleasure meeting you both and we very much look forward to you staying with us again, I'm sure Spencer will have more lemon drizzle cake for you to enjoy!

First time staying here in this great B&B. Made extremely welcome, wonderful themed room and terrific vegetarian and vegan/gluten free breakfasts for us both. Some extras like cake and port in the evening plus a special card and music on my birthday with very little notice to organise. Felt very comfortable and welcome here and can't wait to return!

Relaxing stay at Spencer and Kat's beautifully restored luxurious art deco home. Their attention to detail and collection of 1930s period pieces made us feel like we were stepping back in time. So much effort went into making sure our stay was perfect every want anticpated.

Sue thanks for your splendid review, great to hear that you like all the period details we have put back into the house during our recent renovations. We loved hearing that you had gone past the house for many years and always been fascinated by it; we are so pleased that you have now been able to stay here and seen the house from the inside too! Lovely meeting you both and hope you will stay with us again.

Marvellous mini-break, Kat and Spencer are the ultimate hosts; we felt very welcome, and Covid safe, and by the time we left we were well rested. The restoration they have carried out on their deco property is stunning and meticulous with a great eye for detail. We stayed in the Baron and Lady Carson room which was light and airy with a very comfortable bed and the added bonus of a large balcony from which to watch the sunset. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. A sandy beach is five minues' walk away. If you want to stay somewhere with a nod to the past but all modern comforts and hospitality this is THE place to stay.
