We saw Jacquie mostly and she was very friendly and helpful. We had homemade cakes on arrival and also fresh milk for our tea. The location is ideal for the harbour and local sightseeing and is an ideal base for two. The only thing we would have preferred would be a more conventional oven. Overall though a lovely cosy place to stay. Thank you very much. Victoria and Mick

We had some lovely walks in the sunshine up to Thatchers point and picnicked overlooking the sea that was as striking as the Amalfi coast. The cottage catered for every need with plenty of hot water for a bath after a longish walk. It was close enough to the town to walk for a night out at The Elephant Restaurant which we would recommend and a stumble back (we had the tasting menu with the tasting wines!). As it was autumn the beaches where not busy and the cafe on Blackpool Sands served good organic food at a reasonable price though I'm not sure my large glass of wine at lunchtime was the best idea before a 3 mile uphill walk. The cafe close to our cottage on Meadfoot beach served a good cup of tea and cake (we didn't eat there so can't comment on the food) and has a view straight out to sea for sitting and contemplating on life. A lovely, relaxing holiday with plenty to do and see.
