We were two families with teenagers and toddlers, good shops and restaraunts in the village and less than an hour away from the beach. Will definitely consider returning again sometime.

The swimming pool was a great hit with everyone. The owner was most welcoming and and the house was clean and tidy. The amenities were good, but there was no kettle - quite useful for tea drinkers! The children would have appreciated internet facilities but the adults were pleased there were none. Some brochures or information on events or for example where to hire bikes would have been useful to have had in the house. Thank you for a lovely time and for the potatoes!
