We had a lovely time here. The owners could not have been more welcoming and friendly and the cottage itself was immaculate. We were pleased to see all the utilities available - washing machine and dishwasher and WiFi. We were lucky enough to see a new-born foal, only hours old, taking its first steps right outside our lounge window!

Lovely location - a 4 mile walk to the closest beach along an old railway route but with a convenient pub for a drinks stop. Other beaches in easy reach by car. We enjoyed watching the horses and riders in the field from the sitting room.
