Wonderful stay

We had a fantastic time staying here for Christmas. Lots of room, lovely walks, close to the beach. Gorgeous outlook. We'll be back! (The decorated Christmas tree was a wonderful touch!)

What a delight. Absolutely everything was provided for our stay. The owners sure have thought of everything. The price is very reasonable for the quality of accommodation & St Helens is a great place. How's the serenity!!!
