The cottage is nicely furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. It is very cozy and spacious enough for 5 people. There are also lovely views over the sea and the coastal path can be reached within just a few minutes. It was easy to communicate with the owners during the booking process and before our arrival. Vic came to say hello and check if we needed anything the evening we arrived and he was very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying at Bluebell Cottage.

The views from the main bedroom and living are were stunning and watching the fireworks at the stroke of midnight across the bay from the balcony was a great sight. We would defiantly book again but maybe when it's a bit warmer so as to take advantage af the balcony ,sunsets and views across the bay. The apartment its self is very well equipt and the bubbles left for us in the fridge went down well.

We arrived Christmas Eve, to find Christmas Tree and tasteful decorations, and a selection of food and drinks. Bathroom accessories, plenty of towels, linen etc etc. The building is very well maintained to a high standard. Private parking, safe environment, clean. As for the location....Wow...the view from the balcony was breathtaking. Would we stay there again...YES.
