Inside was warm and welcoming and had everything we needed and more. The garden has amazing views and the added treat of the hot tub! The location is pefect with so may places to go that appealed to all of us. The beach is a few minutes away and local village and train station in walking distance. We will definitely be booking again for a longer stay!

The cottage was very well fitted out and had everything we wanted. The SPAR shop opposite is ideal as well. Most places are in easy reach and there are lots of lovely walks directly from the property. We will be back.
