Lovely outdoor dinning area. Francois and Paula looked after us well. The location is suburban rather than seaside or village, you can walk to the estuary and several restaurants but for anywhere else like the local villages a bike is ideal Paula lent us a couple of bikes which were fine for pottering about the area. Overall highly recommended for a family or for keen cyclists who want a base from which to explore the area

Everything has been thought of to make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible. We loved it! Thank you Nicole !
