The food welcome pack was delightful! Downstairs there is a very spacious, open plan lounge and dining area with a very well equipped kitchen, having pretty much everything you need for a comfortable stay. The bedroom on the ground floor has two single beds and a TV. This room has en-suite access to a Jack and Jill bathroom with a roll top bath as well as a shower. There are two, very large bedrooms on the first floor, both have en-suite shower rooms. Each of these rooms also has a TV and DVD player! The bedrooms are all amazing and the beds were extremely comfortable. Located in a very quiet area but with easy access to main roads. I would highly recommend staying here.

The kitchen is the best equipped we have found and the welcome pack was very generous, with the cream tea very welcome after our journey! The downstairs accommodation is excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. The only negative comment I would make is that the bedroom ceilings, being built in the eaves, mean that you have to be careful to not bang your head. Bob and Nic were very welcoming and available to answer any questions.

Absolutely beautiful apartment with everything you could wish for. The weather could have been better but it didn't stop us getting out and about walking miles along the beach and also the Tarka Trail. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we intend to return next year.
