Stunning Views and Beach at Doorstep

5 of 5
Wonderful peaceful break in this lovely house by the sea. The photos on the site don't do it justice at all! The beach was by my doorstep and as a winter swimmer I was delighted to have a private beach ten paces away. The house was comfortable and well thought out. I can't think of anything to fault here. I could have spent my entire holiday looking out the window.

Pictures don't do it justice

Fantastic house is a perfect location. Everything you need. 20 second walk to food/pubs/sea. House is extremely well kitted out with absolutely everything you need overlooking the harbour. Looking forward to going back again.
