The location was perfect for what we wanted - open spaces, beach walks for the dogs. The cottage was very comfortable, so much space, warm and well equipped. No bad points about this property. Nicki was very helpful on day one and was there when we left on our last morning. Really enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Jackie, the owner was always on hand to help with anything we needed while at the same time giving us space to do as we pleased. We enjoyed the wildlife, particularly the birds and walking on their land. The bluebells in the wood were beautiful. We would have no hesitation in recommending the property.
