It is ideally located for both the village and sea front. We found the bed, sofa and arm chair all very comfortable, there is a large wardrobe in the bedroom, equipped with plenty of hangers! It has a modern bathroom with excellent shower and heated towel rail. The kitchen is basic, but has everything you need, with more than enough crockery, glass wear and cutlery for two people. There is a breakfast bar and stools for eating. Outside, there is a table and chairs to sit and soak up the sunshine, yes even in February! With generous, friendly hosts, who respect your privacy, we would recommend this property most highly!

                                                                                                      4 of 5

Property worked well for 3 families but downstairs bedroom noisy with traffic on cattle grid. Safe garden for children and wonderful access to Forest through back gate. Think property would work best for 8 people for seating in kitchen and lounge . Found oven slightly small when cooking for 10.
