The owner had ensured we had food on arrival, coffee, tea, milk and sugar, plus a cream tea and a box of chocolates. Lots of great pubs near by plus some amazing cliff top walks. Couldn't have been happier would recommend to friends and family and certainly go back again.

It was well equipped, warm and cosy throughout our stay with great views from some cottages. Hot tub and sauna very warming on cold winter evenings and excellent walking nearby. Helpful and friendly hosts. We would return and recommend.
