When you walk in the door you will be struck by the light and spacious room, the décor is - to quote a previous reviewer - "stunning", the sunrise over the sea will bathe the room in a colour that will take your breath away. With a sea view from both the living room and main bedroom, and the sound of the sea roaring as you sip a glass of wine on the balcony in the evening Claribel Cottage is a very special holiday home with a caring owner.

Sandy beach is never ending ... Cottage is quite well equipped. Shower is quite large and the bathroom with bath & shower downstairs is huge. Definitely would recommend to stay at this cottage. One thing need to note, as it is an old cottage, that the stairs leading to upstairs bedroom & bathroom are quite steep and narrow but it, of course, adds to the cottage's charming character. We are very glad that we found this place. The owner, Samantha, was very helpful and accommodating which made our experience of booking and staying at the property very lovely.
