Lots of lovely walks so no need to use the car every day. Caroline and John made us very welcome and the lodge was extremely private, secluded and quiet. To sit and look at the view we started to relax immediately and wished we had booked two weeks instead of one. However it was lovely and we hope to return next year. Siobhain and Kevin

About the same distance will take you to Berry head and saves on the car park charges. The flat has everything needed for a weeks stay and is clean and comfortable. The help with the luggage was much appreciated as the spiral staircase up to the flat could be a little challenging for some. We enjoyed the daily work out 😀 Would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday flat.
