Magnificent views

We love this place. The views are to die for whatever the weather. This is a real home from home. Comfortable sofas and beds. Nice bedding. Large rooms. The dog loves it here. Mrs Ford, the owner greets us when we arrive and waves us off on departure which is a lovely touch. We have booked for next year, it will be our 3rd visit. Say no more Milk iRead moren the fridge for when guests arrive. We walk to the beach 3 times a day, it is less that 5 minutes away. John's, the deli, is worth a cream. Hide
