The facilities both in the Beach House and the garden made for an exceptionally relaxing family holiday. Everything was presented to a high standard including the linen bathrooms and garden. A seaside theme throughout in the way the house is (slightly shabby chic) furnished coupled with a modern kitchen and bathrooms was much appreciated. A good choice of restaurants in the area and excellent seafood from harbour side stalls coupled with evenings at the Beach House sampling from Gosslin's magnificent cellar, to help decide which to take home, all made for a truly lovely holiday.
