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.

We love the pier house ! Friendly, lovely atmosphere and short walk from the apartment. We will definitely be back, thanks again Sharon, julien, jaden and Cody xxxx

The 2 bedrooms upstairs were massive, which the owners had made the most of by making an area to sit and relax with 2 chairs, coffee tables and tv. The ensuite shower rooms were lovely, light and airy. The kitchen was a good size and well equipped, Christmas dinner was a breeze. The property must be very well insulated as it remained comfortably warm, well after the heating had gone off. Views from the property are very nice across the country. It is set in a very quiet location, in the week we were there we counted no more than 4 cars and 2 tractors passing by, so perfect for a lovely quiet break. Mark the owner greeted us on our arrival, made sure we were happy and just left us to it, which was perfect. My son made this stay extra special by proposing to his girlfriend at the beautiful Hartland Quay. We would love to return in the future. Do not hesitate to book
