Lovely Quirky Cottage on the Quay

4 of 5
Stayed at Carolina Cottage the week of 6th October and used it as a base for a walking holiday. The bedrooms, sitting room and bathrooms are well maintained (although the plumbing in the toilets is unusual but efficient). Views from the front bedrooms over the estuary are stunning. The kitchen has all the equipment you could possibly need. Great location.
