Great location to the town and beach literally at the end of the street (although it is down lots of stairs - the path was being repaired while we were there) Warm friendly meet and greet with Clive who was more than happy to answer any questions. Would definitely recommend and return.

Didn't expect that much but when we arrived we were very pleasantly surprised. The owners Dave and Lyn are a lovely, down-to-earth couple who gave us a great welcome which included a bottle of Prosecco and some nice biccies (Don't mind if I do!). It's very fairly priced and not that far from town. With a Co-Op 200 yards away it was perfect for us. We would most definitely stay here again.
