Excellent family holiday

5 of 5
Lovely position. Ideal for a family holiday. We were a party of seven adults and two children and the layout of the property lent itself to providing enough separate space for everyone to do their thing. Great to have such a lovely garden and a huge beach in such close walking distance. Even in winter there were pools and 'caves' to explore, ideal for the three year old who also enjoyed the lovely garden, with plenty of space to run around and kick a ball. It was handy having the little cluster of shops in walking distance on the other side of the bay, with a well stocked general store. Although we did venture out on trips to other local places, we were more than happy to spend much of our time in and close to the house, because it was such a pleasant place to be, even in the snow.
