This quirky property has been wonderfully restored, with quality furnishings and the kitchen has everything you could need, very well equipped. The shower room was an experience in itself, very luxurious. Small issue on our arrival with the key code, but a quick call to the owner soon resolved this. We'd love to know more about the history of the building. It is set in a fantastic location overlooking the harbour, and is a great central location for sightseeing. We will definitely be checking availability for a return visit when we are next in the area!!!!! Don't think too long and hard about booking this, just book it!!!! :)

It as improved since last time we came : a place to park the car just in front of the cottage and a additional cute bedroom at the back. The chemney is still there to give the unique cosy feeling to the place ! We will come back !

We loved the TV, and the WiFi was excellent and allowed me to do a bit of work now and again when I needed to. It also allowed us to use a Samsung tablet, so that my 15 year old could watch her programmes in peace, away from her annoying siblings! We opened up one of the jigsaws, and the whole family joined in, except for the baby who would have swallowed a piece and we would have never finished it!The baby cot and high chair was absolutely perfect also by the way. She loved that high chair and she slept fairly well at night, which is more than she does at home! We enjoyed the location also. Close to supermarkets and coffee shops, castles and beaches. The whole experience was truely relaxing!
