Karen, Paul and Jubejube, their loyal Jack Russell, gave me a wonderful welcome to Sneezewood! Jubejube – fondly known as PR – ushered me to my room where she quickly made herself at home. She loves to look after new arrivals and Karen often has a difficult time extracting her when the time comes. The Theunissens managed a resort in the Seychelles for three years (poor things!), before deciding to create their own perfect B&B. They have clearly poured their heart and soul into the project. There is a modern crispness to the bedrooms and bathrooms, which are neat and compact, the walls painted in soft natural tones. Each room has its own colour theme and fabrics have been chosen in traditional floral patterns and linens - you can disappear into the scatter cushions on the beds. They have included original family furniture in the B&B and another nice touch was the collection of new battlefield history books in the sitting room for guests to browse through. Sneezewood is within easy reach of most of the major battlefields and just 10km away from the 20-acre Talana Museum, devoted, unsurprisingly, to the Battle of Talana and the broader history of Dundee. Paul and Karen are natural hosts, kind and caring people, and they will make you feel like you have known them for years. The recent addition of a beautiful self-catering unit means that families can also now enjoy the warm hospitality and countryside location.
