Great Apartment, Great View.

4 of 5
This is a lovely apartment built very cleverly into the roof of this property. All rooms are large and well furnished, great to have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The balcony is narrow but sitting outside with the view was delightful. Great to have allocated off street parking. Short walk to shops and harbour. Big picture windows giving views of the estuary (front) and town (rear).

Excellent

5 of 5
The cottage was very clean and well furnished and all the main things necessary for our use were provided. The Aga was easy to use and the garden very pleasant to sit in and eat al fresco. The stairs were a little steep and although provided with hand grips were not really, in my opinion, suitable for the elderly. However there was an opening out bed on the ground floor which was useful. It was good to have two toilets and the shower was easy to use. The cottage was well placed for bus and train travel and the town itself full of interesting shops and eating places. All in all a great holiday.
