Fabulous cottage. Loved the fact that it has retained it's charm and character. Very peaceful and easy to relax and unwind there. A little cold in the evenings as no heating due to time of year but lovely snuggly blankets available to cosy into. All in all a thoroughly lovely place to stay and very well thought out.

We loved the cottage and its position. The description suggested that it was nearer the coastal path but we didn't mind the short walk = just not what we expected. We thought it was great to be so near local shops and the bus service. We only used our car once which was very relaxing. The cottage was very clean and well equipped and we quickly feltRead more at home. It would be good to see a small, more attractive outside sitting area with a small table and chairs. we will hopefully return Hide
