Excellent accommodation

Cheshire

This is a high standard guest house located in a smart suburb near the edge of town. It is in an elevated position with sea views from the rear of the property, but most of the bedrooms face the road at the front or the side. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious and had everything we could want for our two night stay. The breakfast was reasonable and imaginatively presented but in the absence of an evening dining facility, you may need to drive or take a taxi into town as it’s a long walk. The owner had made a provisional reservation for us at the Burgundy restaurant which seemed popular with the locals and we wouldn’t have got a table without a reservation. However, we preferred the Dutchies restaurant which we discovered on our second night and is a ten minute stroll straight down to the sea front where there is also a beach bar. There is a lovely walk from the sea front along a coastal path into town which takes about an hour and a half. There were security guards every few hundred yards but I don’t know why as there was no obvious threat either where we stayed or in the town centre. The atmosphere was pleasant, relaxed and unthreatening and I would not hesitate to visit the area again.

Wonderful

Masham, United Kingdom

We stayed at this stunning and beautiful B&B for six pleasurable days. I can’t fault it. Owner and host Teresa is a diamond, she’s friendly, extrovert and makes you feel welcome. Natalie cooks the breakfasts and they are delicious even my husband managed to eat them ! Great stuff Natalie 👍 On arrival you will find you are booked into the Burgundy restaurant for your evening meal taking any pressure away. A really good restaurant we ate there twice, so definitely go. The decor of les baleines is amazing and comfortable, there’s even a snooker table. Other amenities include swimming pool, patio area with comfy loungers chairs and tables. Our room had a lovely balcony furnished with loungers, table and chairs with views towards Grotto beach which is 7/10 mins walk away. All in all a wonderful stay
