Fabulous!

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - accommodation was big enough for our family of two adults and four children, walking distance to clifftop walk, shops/cafes and play park.

Myself and 7 friends stayed over the New Years weekend, great communication with the owner, such a nice house and photos don’t do this place justice. So much space and awesome views. Definitely will be back!
