Lovely cottage in a good location

4 of 5
The cottage was lovely. Outside consists of a private enclosed garden featuring a decked area with hot tub and gas BBQ with a nice view of the sea. Inside decent sized main bedroom with a second containing bunk beds. Kitchen/dinning area is nicely equipped with patio doors onto the garden. Lounge has a nice open fire. Only downside would be the storage heaters in the remainder of the cottage in colder weather. On our arrival there was a nice bottle of prosecco to welcome us which was a nice touch. There are some fantastic walks and a couple of books in the lounge and OS map to guide you. We ate at the George the 3rd which was good and allowed dogs. overall a really good stay. Wouldn't hesitate to re book .
