We were a group of 10 people 6 adults and 4 children, the accommodation was ideal.

The cottage is located in a beautiful area, surrounded by fields and very peaceful and quiet. 10 minute drive to the beach, 2 minute drive to Tesco. We very much enjoyed the home made scones with clotted cream and jam and the wine which was left for us on our arrival. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable and spacious.
