Reliability is key to your enjoyment so everything is geared towards individuals, honesty, warmth and a happy coastal countryside experience. Watch the cows and sheep in the distance, swim in the indoor, heated pool or fall asleep over a book in the garden while the barbecue smoulders in preparation for cooking your fish from the harbour. Wander through fields to a secluded cove and dabble in the rock pools.
