Stunning location that felt really isolated and private. Really enjoyed our time here. The dogs could wander in and out thanks to the gated patio surrounding the property and the view was beautiful to wake up to each morning. Did a beautiful walk just over 7km over the cliffs. Would highly recommend for a quiet, peaceful getaway.

This is an outstanding property, excellently equipped and with lovely modern-design indoor and outdoor areas. It is remarkably spacious for two and well deserves its luxury rating. It is beautifully located right next to the sea but well away from roads so is wonderfully peaceful, with great views. The only drawback is that the shoreline itself is Read morerocky and not really accessible , but there is a lovely coastal path right outside. The community shop in the nearby village is excellent.
