Inside was warm and welcoming and had everything we needed and more. The garden has amazing views and the added treat of the hot tub! The location is pefect with so may places to go that appealed to all of us. The beach is a few minutes away and local village and train station in walking distance. We will definitely be booking again for a longer stay!

The house is well maintained and it is furnished and decorated to a high standard. We believe that the location is superb. Everything is within walking distance and the property is positioned in a lovely elevated spot that allowed us to benefit from the stunning sea views. There are pretty gardens to the front and rear of the property which allows the children ample space to run around. The master bedroom, with its own balcony, provides the perfect quiet spot to enjoy a book and the view. We ate outside most evenings, taking advantage of the BBQ and generous decked area. This property certainly feels spacious. We were two families of four and it never felt cramped. I would totally recommend this property and we will certainly be visiting again soon. It really is a home from home and it is well presented with a lovely feel about it.
