I can't praise this stunning cottage and it's location enough. Spotlessly clean and welcoming. Wine waiting for us and a personal note of welcome. The beds are soooo comfortable too. And its dog friendly. Pretty garden to sit in. And the Thursday morning market in the village hall opposite the cottage is a must. Their bacon and egg sandwiches are legendary. Friendly people too. Just wonderful. Only downside is lack of dog friendly sandy beaches before 7pm. But perfect for families who want spotless beaches. I will definitely go back here.
