This cottage is in the same building as another cottage, but we never felt crowded. The pony in the field beyond the garden is very friendly and not at all fazed by our dogs barking, and the walks around the area are beautiful. Easy bus access into various nearby towns. We didn't drive at all.

Great Holiday Cottage for Dog owners. The property is fenced in at the front and rear so great security for our dog. Excellent walk to the dog friendly beach nearby. Lovely cream tea on our arrival.
