We really liked having the wood burning stove for the colder nights. The garden was very pretty and offered a sheltered place to sit on a windy day. The location on a hill and so close to the coast was excellent. There were great views over the hills and to the sea. It was lovely to be able to walk to the coast path and not use the car for the day.
