Excellent location for seeing the surrounding areas, however lots of places were closed. Beautiful views from the property. Not aware of the steps downstairs in the property. Kitchen cupboards are very high up on the wall and I could just reach the bottom shelf, I'm 5'6' so not short. Dishwasher was not fixed in properly so we didn't use it. Also the dryer didn't work on the washer dryer. The house needed airing. Smelt very musty. The cost of renting the property was expensive for the time of year.

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 !

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

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.
