Despite cold weather it was always warm, even the sun room, that is a lovely light area to eat in. It is well equipped so that living is easy...

It suited us and the dogs well especially as you could get to the sea quickly and there were lots of great walks nearby so we didn't have to use the car to much. We stayed over Christmas and we were provided with a real tree, a really nice surprise. The local pub The Old Inn did a lovely Christmas dinner. The only thing you should consider if staying here are the steps to the apartment are steep but it caused us no problems.
