Property itself is all clean, with everything you need for two. It might get cold (if you are like us), but there's electric fireplace or extra blankets in case you need them - they will do the job - in the end, we stayed in middle of the winter...tv, a lot of books, dvd's, cd's, as well as good wifi, will keep you busy in case you stuck because of the weather. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Joan and Dennis :)

The cottage is in a convenient location within 100 m of the beach and village centre. It benefits from a modern kitchen and bathroom and was beautifully clean on arrival.Very suitable for anyone with a dog having an enclosed paved garden at the rear and good access without going through the house.The conservatory was very handy and made the property seem much more spacious.We will certainly visit again.
