Characterful cottage in prime location

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in Margaret Cottage. Overlooking the quay, the cottage is very clean, very well presented and astonishingly well equipped! Communication with Carrie the owner, and Nickie the cottage manager, was great and the overall impression was that we were dealing with people who genuinely cared that we had a good stay. The cottage was very warm and cosy, and we looked forward to coming back to it each day after long walks on the beach. We came without our son this time, but the cottage is ideally suited for children too, with lots of toys, books and videos (and wifi!) to keep them busy.
