The cottage is in a great location - 20 minutes drive to fabulous days out! Facilities at the cottage are basic and cosy - there is plenty of hot water and the beds are comfortable.

The location is fantastic - its quiet, peaceful, tranquil but easy to get to lots of local attractions by car. The house is comfortable but would benefit from some modernisation - it was an ok place to lay our heads after a busy day out and about but wouldnt have wanted to have had to spend the afternoon and evening there by necessity.

Picturesque cottage in delightful setting which could do with a bit of updating but is reasonably comfortable especially the main bed. Central location, shame theres no shop nearby but there is a pretty pub. The road is quite busy surprisingly but we had a good week as plenty to do if you like wildlife and the sea.
