We had a nice few days. The cottage was clean and well appointed. The walk down the road to the lovely beach was fine and there is a footpath from Marina House but it's a bit over grown. Very nice area to stay.

It was perfect. Everything you need for a weekend stay. Comfortable, clean and warm. Mrs Hale was a great host, we arrived late on Friday and she had put the heating on and left some food, for us to rustle up if hungry. We will be going back. Great location Great walks with the dogs. Thank you

Very nice clean cottage. Dog enjoyed the 1/4 mile walk from cottage to road twice a day. However we were disappointed that we had to drive to the beach. Although it is within walking distance it is a very narrow winding road with tall hedges and we didn't consider it safe to walk
