Reacting to the news, Amanda said: “We are immensely proud. To be ranked 14th in the country is an amazing achievement.

“We do our best to provide a great service for our guests who are coming to stay. We treat others how we would like to be treated if we were going away somewhere.

"We try to go that little bit extra to make their stay is extra special. We have a lot of bookings between now and the end of the year.

“Our B&B is different to others as I am a nutritional therapist. I use my knowledge to provide lots of different breakfast options including healthier options.

“For example, I make my own granola and bread. We also source organic nitrate-free bacon and gluten free, nitrate-free sausages locally. I try to find ingredients that provide extra nutritional benefit.

“It makes a huge difference to us when we get kind TripAdvisor reviews. We are very grateful to everybody who does it.”
