A wonderful setting for a family celebration

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous stay with family to celebrate my up coming 60th Birthday. The house and views were amazing as was the stunning cove. The welcome cream tea was absolutely delicious. We had dinner served at the house and this made our stay really special. A big thankyou to Keith for renting out his beautiful home and we look forward to returning soon.

A Perfect retreat for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful stay with three generations all loving the property. Loads of space, every comfort, REALLY popular games room, amazing hot tub and barbecue area, comfy beds, and a very warm welcome which included wine and cream tea! Cannot recommend this too highly for a special occasion. Great views and SO peaceful. Nearby cove is very pretty and great coastal walks on the doorstep. Hotel next door is available for meals, indoor swimming pool ,gym and to-die-for spa treatments which is an added bonus.
