Beautiful Walking Holiday
My wife and I stayed at the Beach Cottage at the beginning of April. The Cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, a cosy living room, a bedroom with very comfortable twin beds and an ensuite bathroom with shower and bath. The Cottage is immaculate, well maintained with very good central heating for the chilly mornings and evenings. The owners live next door and were very friendly and helpful. The only pub in the village is a pleasant 15 minutes walk away and there are other pubs within short driving distances. We found it a very peaceful place with plenty of options for walks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cottage and hope to visit again in the future. We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.
