Beautiful location. The views from the outside decking area are overwhelming ! So beautiful. The house was equipped with almost everything we needed (only thing missing was some bags for food waste, which I couldn't find in local shop. Had to go to tesco's). Would defintely return. Chippy across the road is very good, but try to go early as the queue begins up the street even before they open the doors !

Thank you for your review, delighted that you had a lovely time and the weather was good enough to sit out on the amazing decking watching the waves.

Fabulous balcony and superb location. Everything is close by yet it is still very peaceful. We had great weather which meant we could make the most of it, but there is still a lovely view from the rear lounge at cooler times of day. The view has to be one of the best we have ever had from a holiday home anywhere we have been. Downstairs is huge, having 2 lounges and a good size dining area and kitchen. Upstairs the 3 bedrooms are nice but small and with little furniture. The main bedroom has only a bed and bedside tables - no room for anything else. Hanging space is coat hooks on the wall. This wasn't a problem for just two of us as we put our clothes and bags in an unused bedroom. But if all 3 bedrooms were occupied it could be pretty cramped. That is the only negative and we would definitely stay there again.

This is a fabulous cottage - amazing views from every window and especially from the deck area. Perfectly situated to explore the surrounding area and very comfortable and well equipped.

Alison Slinger - 16th July 2018

Perfect location. Only drawback was musty smell in rear living room which seems to be a problem in lots of holiday cottages.

Nicholas Hill - 19th June 2018

Lovely cottage in superb location.

John Rashleigh - 18th May 2018

Really lovely home from home cottage in a fantastic location. The outside decking area was an added bonus.

Tracey Little - 1st February 2018

The balcony is wonderful and obviously sells this property but the interior of the house cannot be classed as a 'quality' cottage. The 3 piece suites were very old and not comfortable and the beds were very hard. There was lots of dust in the main room and quite a few safety issues in the kitchen, namely the kettle being perched precariously on top of a microwave and the grill pan was very difficult to get out of the cooker and on to a work surface. No information about local doctors, dentists etc. And our main problem was the problem with the gas boiler which resulted in us having to wait in for an engineer on our first day, wasting the whole morning. It should have been in good repair.
