Shell seekers is a beautiful cottage in a peaceful setting. It is the cleanest and best equipped holiday home we have ever stayed in. Highly recommend it. The description mentions a pub a short (10 minute) walk from the cottage. This is true but the walk is along lanes with no footpaths - not easy with a pram or buggy and suggest a torch for night Read morewalking. Hide
