Excellent property, really enjoyed our stay!

5 of 5
Really enjoyed our stay here - we didn't want to leave! Lovely fisherman's cottage, beautifully decorated and spacious. Great location with windows opening to the harbour, free parking outside, easy to walk to shops. The owners are very friendly, easy to arrange to meet for key handover. Very relaxing stay!
