Beautiful house in excellent location

5 of 5
The house was absolutely perfect for our weekend away and in such a brilliant location. Only 5 mins from the beach and local shops. House had everything we needed and more. Scones were a lovely added touch for when we arrived

Beautiful character cottage! Perfect for a birthday weekend away.

5 of 5
We couldn't fault the cottage. It was warm and cosy, with the added bonus of the log burner. (Wood included). Despite the weather being wet we were able to still walk to the beach and the 2 nearby pubs, which offered superb food. Would highly recommend this for a true experience of British country cottage in a beautiful village by the sea with the added bonus of being dog friendly.
