The Lobster Creel overlooks the harbour, and you can sit in the comfort of the window seat or the outside bench, watch the world go by and the lobster fishing boats come and go. The cafe - Hidden Treasure was great, and although only doing take away the standard of food and welcome from the owners was excellent. The Anchor Hotel has a nice sheltereRead mored beer garden and a good menu. It can be very busy and is the only pub in the village so best book. The Lobster shop is ace! A very relaxing week! Hide

We loved the harbour-front location and the cosy feel of the cottage after exploring the local area during the day. The kitchen is generally well-equipped and the lounge area quite spacious. At the time of our visit the surroundings were quiet and contributed to the relaxing atmosphere.

The perfect place for a break. The cottage is beautiful and comfortable. The views are amazing and if you can tear yourself away from them, there are great walks along the coast or attractions further afield. The village shop is well stocked so no need to drive anywhere if you don't want to. I was a bit in doubt when booking this place to be honestRead more, but the photos and description really undersell this place Hide
