Perfect accommodation in a lovely location

5 of 5
The Summerhouse is ideally situated for the beach and exploring the surrounding areas. It is well equipped - the kitchen has everything you need - the washing machine was a welcome addition to. Plenty of storage space, lots of games to keep children entertained. The extra treats when we arrived were very thoughtful (milk, Juice, scones, clotted cream, jams, hot chocolate, coffee and tea). Outside there is a BBQ for guests to use and a selection of wetsuits, body boards, buckets, spades etc for guests to use. Overall the summerhouse was home from home and we all enjoyed our stay there!
