My daughters walked into the Cormorant with wide eyes exclaiming this was the best place we've ever stayed! The photos didn't spoil the surprise as I was unsure what to expect but actually the layout really works. Compact, clean & functionable, even with two dogs. The garden is really useful & adds a homely feel but the piece de resistance is having the beach on your doorstep. The many faces of the surf played a starring role in our albeit brief visit as the weather ranged from storm force winds to absolute calm and wall to wall sunshine. We loved the quirky features of the beach house, roll top bath, butler sink, wooden floors all adding to its historicity. This is obviously a much valued property and we can see why. A special treasure, and we will always treasure our memories of staying here. We wouldn't hesitate to return here and to recommend a stay to all those looking for something a little different.
