  • “The cottage was perfect, had everything we needed, all the information about the property was clearly given.”

    Had lovely welcome gifts of fresh milk, homemade jam and pickle and a personal handwritten note from the owners. The owners son also called round to make sure everything was ok with us and we were happy with everything.

A beautiful, remote location, but only a small car ride to the beach and lots of other places of interest. Would certainly go back!! Ten out of ten for this holiday property.
