Guestbook comments from the owner

"A lovely home in a fantastic setting, we can't imagine a better equipped holiday home - everything we could possibly need (and more!) is here."

"Fabulous holiday, great accommodation, a wonderful welcome and Marilyn, Richard and the children were so friendly, accommodating and generous throughout our stay"

From the Owner

We moved into the farmhouse in 2010 when Richard's parents reached retirement age and moved out. Previously we lived in a house closer to the village centre. The Village has a relaxed feel about it which is contagious. The idyllic coast and countryside , with rugged cliffs and sandy coves, is waiting to be explored. It is a fantastic place to have to work!
