Chris, our host, was very welcoming and provided an excellent welcome tray. The property suited us admirably and was very comfortable with every convenience. It would be equally suitable for our children and grandchildren. It is extremely well located for Challaborough beach. The only slight downside is the view over the caravan park from the upstairs, otherwise perfect.
