About the Owner
My name is Myriam Stirling, born and raised in Germany by parents who all their lives owned and managed high quality hotels. I was already involved in many important chores around the hotel life and business from small age on-wards and grew up providing highest standards to guests. My father in law Jonathan Stirling bought the Wharf House off the former owners Penny and Kevin O'Neill in 2015 who did an amazing job developing the Wharf from a restaurant to 7 beautiful holiday apartments. Our job is now to keep the exceptional standard but also improve and maintain the apartments with up-to-date reservation management and on-going enhancements throughout the property inside and out.
We are committed to giving our guests the best possible holiday experience and endeavour to improve & update our apartments on a regular basis.
