Beautiful well equipped house surrounded by fantastic walks and a gorgeous sea view and short walk to beach. Maybe not so good for people who cannot walk far unless they have a car and or just want to stay in house. Steps to house are steep. Great for kids with a well equipped games room . A lovely cafe within a 10 minute walk

A beautiful cottage, tastefully renovated with absolutely stunning views. Well equipped with everything we needed for the most amazing week away over Christmas, really relaxing. Sandra gave us the warmest of welcomes, with fresh flowers and the cottage beautifully decorated for Christmas. We would highly recommend this fabulous property and hope to return again soon.

The view from the lounge is amazing. The bed was comfortable and the shower was adequate. The bath is not suitable or elderly/infirm guests as getting in and out is interesting! The sky package wasn’t very useful as the signal was poor and it was impossible to watch any catch up tv due to hour long download times. We loved the location because it was really quiet.

Had everything for the family. Luxury, en-suite bathroom with hi tech shower and bath, open plan and games room - brilliant. Views spectacular.

Beautiful views & comfortable cottage; definitely need a car for days out if you don’t want to spend them on the beach. Makes a good base - good communal space & our kids made good use of the garden. Few tiny maintenance issues which need addressing - Sandra super helpful re access.

The cottage was spotless and comfortable, spectacularly well positioned, steep steps up to it. I would probably have arranged the kitchen a bit differently. The shower in the small shower room was excellent, when you got the hang of it! The enclosed beautifully-kept garden was a tremendous hit, especially with the grandchildren. The large outdoor table was much appreciated and used. The telescope was an unusual and interesting addition. We certainly hope to go back.
