The cottage and gardens are of an outstanding quality. Everything you could possibly need is provided. The welcome hamper and doggy hamper are a thoughtful touch. The hottub is a welcome addition and kept spotlessly clean. The location is perfect for walks and Sandy hills beach.

The location was very peaceful and great for nature lovers. Whilst only half a mile from the beach it is more suited to active individuals rather than elderly persons with mobility issues as it is situated at the top of a steep hill. The owners are very helpful.
