Property was clean and tidy. The owner's representative is extremely helpful and responded promptly to any queries. As noted in other reviews, there is no driveway or allocated parking but we did not experience any difficulty during our week's stay. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

The only thing I would of liked would of been a King size bed as although the double bed was comfortable a King size should be standard these days where there is room. The owners Katrina & Arthur where lovely people and the location was perfect with a brilliant beach and all local attractions nearby. We like our walking and the south coast walk didn't disappoint. The Ship public house house within the village had a lovely friendly atmosphere and served excellent pub grub. There is also an excellent cycle hire facility in the village with some great cycle routes to explore as we discovered. Would of liked to of returned same time next year but unfortunately was already booked on those dates so obviously a popular place to stay. Enjoyed our stay and holiday very much and will return sometime in the future.
