From walking in the door to a personal welcome card, to finding everything we needed and more to be catered for, everything about Andy and Lynn's home from home made us feel relaxed and welcome. I came with my three children for a short break from the usual chaos and we had a great time - walking to the lighthouse was fun and it was great being close to the aquarium. The caravan is in a great position in the site and is beautifully maintained. It is warm and cosy, the kitchen has everything you need, the beds are really comfortable and the bathroom is lovely and clean. The owners have this van as their home from home and this was apparent in the surplus of books, DVDs, Sky TV, soft furnishings, and filled cupboards - everything you need to make your stay more comfortable. Thank you so much!

One small comment I would make - from experience we know that the cottage does not provide hand towels so we take our own - however I find that quite surprising as I would have thought that hand towels were a necessity.
