Had a very enjoyable Easter Weekend here. Very quiet road and very close for a walk to the seafront, about 5 mins. You can also walk into the town along the seafront, about half hour. The cottage was really nice - a good size and clean throughout. The conservatory in the front bedroom is a really good addition to the room. Despite there being propeRead morerties either side and to the back of the house the garden is still very secluded. Good communication from the owner before arrival. Hide

I liked the story of the house and to know who lived in it in the past. The honey and the fact that these people shared the love they had for bees and that they shared their knowledge too apart from having a hive.
