A perfect family cottage, children loved being so close to the beach and harbour. So handy having restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops just a stones throw away. Can't wait to go back again next year. Mrs S Lock, Warrington.
We stayed out of season when it was less busier, perfect for a cosy getaway with the log burner on and a glass of wine. Enjoying long strolls along the coastal path with our dogs watching the season change and the wildlife. Mr B Stewart, Bristol.
We had a lovely time here. The house is really cosy but spacious and in a brilliant location with the sandy beach, shops, pubs and restaurants so close by. Would definitely go back! S.Bailey-Bond, London.
Thanks again, we had a great time.
All the best, Susila.
