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 !

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.
