This property really lived up to its billing. It's in a great location with wonderful views over the harbour and within walking distance of the pub. It's a very welcoming property - the owners provide bath robes, White company toiletries and a welcome bag with wine and biscuits - they even made sure there were ice cubes in the freezer - all nice anRead mored thoughtful touches. We were blessed with the weather and enjoyed drinks on the very large balcony watching the sun go down - bliss! Hide

Didn't want to leave the wonderful views from the apartment. Definite wow! Factor. The apartment is tastefully decorated with light colours. We were lucky to have a really warm day so chilled out on the balcony, bliss! We cannot wait to go back.

My wife and I stayed at Harbourside for a week from 6th October. Wonderful apartment. Wonderful views. Very peaceful. Close to many amenities. I would say this is the best holiday apartment I have stayed in and I have stayed in many. Great value. Well appointed.

Fabulous location and views over the water. Lots to watch, with boats coming and going all the time. Pubs and take-aways within walking distance, and a good-sized Co-Op close by (not to be mistaken for the convenience Co-Op just up the road).

Stunning views, stunning setting, stunning apartment. Perched right on the edge of the Marina with a superb ourside terrace, this must be one of the best coastal accomodations in the country. This is our second visit and hopefully will make this an annual event.

Very well appointed apartment. Lovely views over the harbour and bay with something interesting to watch at all times of the day. Most enjoyable.

We chose the Harbour Side apartment because we needed somewhere that was all on one level for our elderly parents. It was perfect, no steps, and the most incredible view of the marina and the estuary - it kept us entertained all week and we didn't want to leave!

Wonderful apartment with outstanding views of the marina and coastal inlet. The apartment is well furnished and very comfortable with lots of nice touches. A wide patio along two sides of the apartment adds to the facilities. Great local dining.

A beautiful location and the double terrace is a plus.

Reviewed by Sandra, 28th April 2017

The views from the property are amazing & watching the comings and goings on the water kept us entertained - even without our own boat we found ourselves planning our days around the tides. The car park is situated close to the lift. It is a bit of a walk from the lift along the corridor to the apartment but my 86 year old father managed OK. The weRead morelcome pack was much appreciated. I would book again. Hide
