  • "A stunning cottage, beautifully kept in an outstanding location."

    We were delighted with our stay. The cottage is in a perfect, quiet location yet within walking distance of the town. here's plenty of facilities and local shops and pubs, a spectacular coastline, you're surrounded by mountains on one side and can watch wildlife along the river estuary from the window. We were lucky with weather and had a wonderful stay. Thanks to a great host.
