However, The best thing about this cottage is its location, which is stunning, being right on the harbour.

The ceilings are low as we were warned by the owner and it would not be suitable for elderly or infirm but this is as advertised. The kitchen is well equipped and the shower was powerful. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and visited 3 nearby dog friendly pubs for dinner and went for glorious dog walks. The garden is lovely, however our dog could jump easily into the next-door neighbours garden so visitors should be aware to supervise their dog in the garden.
