  • "The property was in a great location with the beach at the end of the road, I never had any issues parking close by either."

    It was comfortable and cosy and there was a lovely welcome pack. Beds were great and I would book again if in the area. There is also a handy shop close by and it was lovely and quiet in the street , the only thing to note was no freezer that is in the description but that was no issue for us.

    The description of the cottage was completely accurate as we were comfortable and happy in our surroundings. We were delighted with the close proximity to a delightful beach, a good restaurant and useful little shop. We really hope to return and will recommend the holiday property to others. Thank you.

  • "Seashell cottage is in a good location near a dog friendly beach and was spotlessly clean & tidy."

    The description is inaccurate as there is a fridge not fridge/freezer. Also, the lounge is very small & with a galley kitchen, it is not really suitable for 4 adults.
