Bed & Breakfast

In 2016, I decided that we would rent out a bedroom in our house, for guests to stay over.

I can only say that it has been a great experience.

Over the period we have meet some really lovely & interesting people.

Some of our guests have wanted to keep themselves to their selves , That`s fine by us. Others have really engaged with us & its felt like family friends we have had staying with us.

There`s a double bed which faces the window. Most guests have loved waking up to the sound & sight of the sea. If that's not to your liking, we have reinstated the original wooden shutters & the bed room has been described as giving  sensory deprivation. its so dark & quiet! Roddy McKenzie has painted a  Henri Rousseau themed frieze. 52 animals are somewhere in the jungle!

The sitting area has an open fireplace,  I think that its dated from 1950`s & the pattern on it compliments the herringbone parquet flooring. Our original plan was to have 2 bedrooms, so we installed a rolltop bath & small toilet in the room, but have since decided to have a sofa bed instead which now means that relaxing in the bath with a real fire is a total indulgence!


I love the look of natural wood, so have invested many hours sanding & stripping the doors , windows & shutters back and finished with oil. know that they aren't perfect with bumps & flaws, but we wouldn't have it any other way. The furniture has all been repurposed - the bedroom suite had been in my grandpa's house, it was in my bedroom when I was a teenager. It`s new home is now here at Croy. I bet it could tell a tale or two.

The bathroom has a large walk-in shower with rain shower Roddy has painted the Hokusai inspired mural.... but check out the subtle difference in the mountain tops!

I buy my shampoo & conditioner from if you use ELECTRICBRAGALLERY you can claim 10% at checkout.

Continental breakfast - fresh fruit cold meats & cheeses have always suited guests. There`s plenty of tea /coffee & I like to support the local farm shop by using their produce.  Croy shore is a fantastic place to visit from the stormy seas to the super calm - glass like conditions. There's no end to beautiful sunsets. A Beautiful Day, swimming or paddle boarding or even just walking on the beach is a lovely way to spend a summer day. My beach movie with sound the sound of the wind & waves makes you feel refreshed & optimistic. hopefully wanting to visit our beautiful coast.
