An amazing property by the sea. Ideal for a family get together. Good for walking, local visits, food, restaurants, pubs. Why travel miles at home or abroad when this is available!

We chose this property for a family holiday with our three grownup children, their partners, and our four grandchildren. There was plenty of room and some pleasing touches, such as some toys. The large garden was a godsend, and it was very useful to be able to go down to the beach quickly on days when the weather was changeable.

A fabulously appointed property, being able to sit in the garden next to the sea and walk on to the beach is exactly what we wanted. There was plenty of outside furniture to move around so we could eat or relax in different places including the beach.

Greengates is perfect for a family holiday with little ones. Very comfortable and well-equipped with plenty of safe space for everyone. It is lovely to have the village shop, a good pub and the beaches so close. Watch out for the seagulls which will have the toast out of your hand in the garden in a heartbeat!

The location of this property was brilliant the garden was large and we were able to play rounders and cricket the beach was just as we expected it brought back memories of our childhood and was good to share with our grandchildren that holidays don't need fun fares and arcades just a bucket and spade and imagination

Greengates is a spacious, comfortable property tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard. Excellent quiet location for all the family with a large secure garden leading down to the beach via a 'greengate'. Everything worked perfectly including good water pressure to the showers. Great night sleep in comfortable beds.
