Verity allowed us to bring our four pugs with us, they loved it as much as us and the garden was ideal for them. There was everything that you could possibly want from your holiday including a super hamper with lots of goodies inside, Verity had thought of everything.The decor is absolutely gorgeous with lots of little seaside bits and pieces, everything was quality and superb taste. Parking was easy and you could walk to the beach and town. We would definately book again Suzanne

We were very lucky with the weather starting even the begin of November with some sunshine on the fantastic sun deck with excellent views over the sea. Thanks to the owners Karin and Jeremy!!
