We had a lovely weeks stay, with three generations and there was everything we could possibly need at the property, which was clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend and wouldn't hesitate to return in the future. Thanks Jill!

Lovely bungalow with an absolutely beautiful view across the bay to the needles. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday then look no further.

We did not have to search for things, they were all there which made our stay more enjoyable. The beautiful view from the chalet was marvellous while enjoying our wine in the evening on the very comfortable patio furniture! We can't wait to return, hopefully very soon. Would highly recommend.Thanks Stephanie you made booking and arrangements really easy.
