Guestbook comments from the owner

We found your house extremely comfortable, particularly the beds. Loved the kitchen and we were lucky enough to have been able to use the outside space.

The Oyster Shack was truly memorable we had a marvelous lunch.

Wonderful visit to your house. The kids and dogs had a marvellous time in the grounds and playroom. Lovely space for all the family, especially the kitchen and Aga. Great beaches close by and lovely village pubs. We will be back. July 2012



Just to mention that we had a lovely stay at your house.  It was a great place for adults and children and we enjoyed it very much. June 2012
