We felt immediately at home. Lisa, thank you for your warm welcome! Ofcourse the view is stunning! We were lucky the new pier had opened, perfect place to have lunch or coffee! There are so many things to do and see that we probably have to come back! Going up the east hill with the lift and walking there was great! And even with 4 teenagers the adventure golf was a lot of fun!

Myself, my partner and our three year old son absolutely loved it! Stunning views, beautiful quirky cottage, loved the terraces and the little 'secret garden' as my little boy called it! The owner thought of every single little personal touch you could imagine! Everything you need is already there. We had an amazing time, and we will definitely be returning here! Truly special place!
