Welcome to Ingrid's guest house and home. The small guest house with lots of character. You are not a guest, you are a visitor in Ingrid's home.
' I inherited some beautiful classic antique furniture and had to keep it in storage for 8 years until I found the guest house - the two were made for each other. The building is from the late 1700's and I am forunate in that it still retains some original features. The dining room / lounge gives this house an illusion of grandeur with its high ceiling, large sash windows and open fireplace. Some of the furniture - the grandfather clock (restored on the island), welsh dresser and pictures add to the feeling of elegance. The staircase with the original mahogany hand rail leads up to the bedrooms. There are only three rooms, two ensuite and one with its own bathroom. Each room has its own individual decor and I have tried to add a feeling of comfort through the soft furnishings and paintings. All the rooms have an east / west aspect so are full of light. The rooms are equiped with TVs and the trays have a selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and home made biscuits.
To the rear of the property is a quiet patio, the beech table in the centre was hand made in the 30s. Surrounded by flower pots, climbing roses and jasmine,you can listen to the fountain and watch the goldfish. Beyond is a small garden, a retreat, a place to relax with a book or bring in a bottle of wine, glasses are of course provided.
Breakfast is a feast of fresh fruit salad, melon or pink grapefruit. Local dairy produce and home made jams and marmelades accompany the cooked breakfast with bread from the bakery '
