The cottage had everything we could have wanted for cooking, had a lovely back garden (it was a shame it was too cold to use it!) and it's right by the beach. There's a delicious cafe and shop just down the road and there are a number of walks you can do right from the doorstep. Ruth was extremely easy to contact and always responded to questions quickly. We couldn't recommend Nanny's Cottage more!

Lovely standard of living conditions and thoughtfulness of the proprietors with it being fully set up toddler friendly for us, the cot and stair gates every where they were needed - along with a complimentary bottle of bubbles on arrival. :-) Pool was warm and in a clean condition as was the whole site. Great mixed age games room including little tykes items and small toys for young children as well as a pool table and table tennis. Outside play area with swings and climbing frame etc and a nice space for ball games. Would definitely go back, enquired about next year but was full booked already.
