Including our dog Molly. We particularly loved sitting in the conservatory watching the birds and just enjoying the views. The kitchen was perfect all new and everything you would need to cook a meal from scratch. The bedrooms were lovely, with the most comfortable beds and pillows. We can see this home is well looked after and loved in every way. We had a Lovely walk to the pub who also allows dogs , which was great for us. Very friendly staff and locals . We also had breakfast at the Hive Beach cafe lovely place to sit and drink in the sea views. We will definitely come back here to this great location and home. Thank you so much for a very enjoyable weekend..

The accommodation is very cosy ( we were there in November) and very clean. The welcome pack is very generous, far more than expected. It's the little things that make the holiday like the fresh eggs , bread and croissants, the fresh flowers, the dog bowl, bedding and biscuits . The village is a great base for exploring the surrounding area. Whether it be the number of National Trust properties close by, the coast or the local pub! Thanks Eric for a wonderful stay. We shall be recommending you .
