Attractive cottage with loads of character in lovely cared-for grounds. Roomy inside and out with easy access and parking. Great location only 5 mins' walk to the sea, shops, cafes and restaurants. Walks on the doorstep. Just a shame that we found the bed uncomfortable. Otherwise a really great stay.

Very comfy cottage in pretty secluded grounds. Struggled a bit with the stairs as we are elderly. Needed to be very organised and use outside toilet on occasions. Good equipment although we really would have liked an oven glove. The television in main bedroom wasnt easy to use and we had to fiddle around to get any reception (think it was the aerial) so tended not to bother. Nice games room, we didnt use much as we had lovely weather.
