The cottage has been furnished to an exceptional level in every room, which made our stay so cosy and comfortable. The views from the cottage are wonderful, changing with the tides. I cannot wait to visit again, perhaps in the summer so I can take advantage of the terrace overlooking the creek.

Great local pub a couple of minutes walk away.we enjoyed being able to relax in the apartment after a busy day of sightseeing. It was only a 25 minute trip on the tube into the middle of london. Would recommend.
