Overlooking the quay, the cottage is very clean, very well presented and astonishingly well equipped! Communication with Carrie the owner, and Nickie the cottage manager, was great and the overall impression was that we were dealing with people who genuinely cared that we had a good stay. The cottage was very warm and cosy, and we looked forward to coming back to it each day after long walks on the beach. We came without our son this time, but the cottage is ideally suited for children too, with lots of toys, books and videos (and wifi!) to keep them busy.

Absolutely beautiful apartment with everything you could wish for. The weather could have been better but it didn't stop us getting out and about walking miles along the beach and also the Tarka Trail. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we intend to return next year.
