The beach that changes with the tides, wide sandy surf tinged to no beach and waves breaking upon the cliff. The path down is an adventure and not for the less mobile but with benches to give you a rest and views to enthrall it is worth it. The cottage is cosy, a perfect example of a classic english holiday home with all the modern touches, a playground with putt putt, tennis and football is just near by. Could have stayed longer. We all came home refreshed, happy and full of tales of our adventure, what more can you want. As my 11 year old said "The only boundary is your spirit, how far do you want to go."

The location was excellent for coastal walks and the sea and town . Everything we needed was available in the accommodation and it was perfectly clean . All in all l can highly recommend this as a choice to stay at ,our whole party from. Elderly parent to teenage son and dogs thoroughly enjoyed this short break .
