Being up a pedestrianised alley (no vehicle access) it is very quiet and peaceful (bar the damn seagulls!!!) The property itself is very smart in appearance, well decorated, bright and functional (with wifi, tv, washer-dryer, iron/board etc). It comfortably slept me and the wife, plus my daughter and friend on the sofa-bed. There were also flowers, a pint of milk and tea/coffee/sugar, S&P etc left for us on arrival, which was a nice touch indeed. The small patio area outside is nice for breakfast and G&Ts, despite not getting much sun. If I was asked for one minor area of improvement it would be that the bed mattress is too new and hard!!! All in all a great place to stay. Thank you Judith.

Everything you could wish for is on the doorstep, and the children can roam free. Inviting and cosy, the cottage has a lovely kitchen/lounge area, perfect for families and get togethers, (welcome pack used straight away, thank you) and nice relaxing bedrooms, just what you need for the end of a day body boarding, lounging on the beach, and a wonderful fish dinner, Bliss !!!!
