I can't thank Philip and Julie enough for their hospitality! Location was great, the house was really nice, tidy and so was the room. But I think that Philip and Julie make a real difference, the way they treat you is different and unique. Thanks a lot for for everything!

After thirty years in the private client investment management industry, Philip decided to make a small change in direction to become a bed and breakfast proprietor - he would claim that the two businesses are not that different, only now he is always making the tea.
