The cottage is in a fantastic position in the village with a short 10min walk down to the beach, although a little longer coming back up. My husband played the links golf course you pass to get to the beach and said it was excellent and in beautiful condition. The cottage was very cosy, clean had everything we could want and the bed was lovely an cRead moreomfy. The post office and garage had enough food for those who dont come prepared with any stocks or need a top up. Beautiful and would recommend. Hide
