However, midships is the kind of place you pinch yourself about. Located on the cliff above a string of beaches, 5 minutes to the shop and pub, 5 light years away from the pressures of life, this cottage is perfect. It's immaculately set up - the owners clearly see it as their home and not just a let. We have spent a blissful week and have booked next year already. You know when you find a place that you know will become your holiday haven for years to come? This is it. It was our first summer holiday with our baby daughter and the most special of times. Expensive, yes, but worth every penny. All I'd say is bring black out blinds if you have little ones, and make sure you go to the pub on a Wednesday night in full summer. But don't book it in fact. Only we can go there....

We have just returned from staying at this amazing chocolate box cottage which has been completely renovated by the owners in a sympathetic and contemporary style. It has the highest quality finishings and some wonderful touches to keep both kids and adults entertained. As a family of 5 we have stayed in quite a few holiday cottages in recent years and this one has to rank as one of the best both in terms of finish quality and also consideration given to guests needs by the owners. The very welcome basket is also a great touch. With some properties the photos&description highlight the best bits and forget to mention the less desireable aspects but in the case of this cottage there are no hidden horrors just more pleasant surprises to be found. We enjoyed everything about the property and its proximity to the local beaches of which there are many, early morning runs down to South sands were a particular favourite. It would be great to think this property remained our best kept secret as we'd love to return but have no doubts others will love it too, thanks to the hard work and thoughtfulness of the owners and helpful neighbours a.k.a Rocky who clearly loves the property also.
