Cosy, comfortable cottage within a few miles drive of many lovely coastal venues. Veo helpful and warm owners on site for any issues. (we had none apart from getting lost and not being able to find our way back to the cottage a few times!!)

Excellent, so well equipped - even included a picnic hamper and blanket! Well located for the places we wanted to visit; most of them being within 10 miles or so. Five minutes by car from a supermarket. No shops in the village but does have a pub serving good food only 5 minutes from cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
