I would describe it as "small but perfectly formed". We had a wonderful break. A bottle of champagne greeted us - maybe because it was New Years Eve whilst we were there. The cottage had all the essentials for a relaxing break and is in the perfect location for exploring the wonderful beaches nearby. We took two dogs and the owners were happy to accommodate them. We had dinner in the village pub twice and found it really welcoming. The food was tasty and good value. We would definitely come back again.
