This is a superb holiday property owned by people who really care. The standards within the cottage are exceptional with 3 great bedrooms and loads of equipment and kitchen implements that help it become a home from home. The gardens are a delight and to be able to walk straight onto the beach was lovely. I will never forget the view of the beach fRead morerom the lounge window. This is without doubt the best holiday home I have been to. Hide

Great cottage, very comfortable with large rooms. Location could not be better with super views of both sea, river and hills.

Beautifully situated and very well appointed. We especially appreciated the spotless bedding (after an unfortunate experience last year with a Sawdays property!) Met the friendly owners as well.
