The sands are extensive especially at low tide and the sea shallow. Then there are the rock pools to explore! Rockham Beach, very near the cottage, is amazing anytime but try walking there as the sun sets. The cottage is spacious and clean and thoughtfully equipped for a family. We needed to go in 3 cars and found it easy to book the two extra cars into the car park in the village. The village shops are a stroll away for fresh croissants each morning and we recommend the takeaways for quality and value. We had a fantastic, memorable holiday. We will return!
