I spent a wonderful weekend at this Mecca for Knitters. Paula was a perfect hostess for our group of West Yorkshire knitters. The food was delicious, the rooms were great, and the shop was stocked with lots of lovely yarn and accessories, some of which departed with me!

What a fabulous weekend treated as royalty. A really great time if only it was every weekend.

Muriel Jackson

As far from an ordinary B&B as you can get. Simple, homely, clean and confy, with everything a knitter or crotcheter could need. What else matters,
Wonderful weekend being very well looked after.

Margaret Callaghan

Paula creates a wonderfully warm and friendly atmosphere at Westcliffe with her kindness and good humour, as well as that of her lovely family. The welcome and service are excellent, and the food delicious, even for an allergy sufferer like myself.
