The views were amazing and we enjoyed some lovely walks around the Quay and by the Church. We will most definitely be going back again

We were made to feel very welcome by the owner Jeremy. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed for self catering. The location suited us well as it was only a short walk to the local pubs and shops. We enjoyed many coastal path walks and loved the beaches and scenery in the area. We will definitely visit again. A very relaxing holiday overall.
