beautiful views in a lovely safe environment. We had 16 month old baby with us and this house was idyllic. The garden was safe for him to run around in. it was well kept and simply stunning just like the entire house. Nothing was missing this was a perfect home from home.

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. The property had spacious rooms and was adequate for us (7 adults). 4 shared the downstairs bathroRead moreom, with 2 teenagers that was plenty, it could have needed to service 7. Fixtures and fittings good quality, beds very comfy & plenty of parking. Hide

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!
