Very much enjoyed our stay at The Tumblers. Lovely warm bungalow, plenty of hot water. Very impressed with the comfortable beds, crisp white linen and fluffy towels. The bungalow had everything we needed for our holiday, A very well equipped house. So very convenient for the town. The view across to the harbour from the conservatory very nice. The only blip was having to look out onto the side of the Beach House hotel opposite - very quiet at this time of the year but I would imagine not so quiet in summer. I did do a recce in September and there were lots more cars and the smell of cooking at the hotel. Perhaps a tall hedge along half of the existing fence might help and make the front garden more private without losing the seaview. Despite that this has been one of the best holiday rentals I have stayed in and would definitely recommend.
