  • "The cottage and hosts were fantastic."

    The location could not be beat you could see and hear the waves from the cottage. The property had everything you could need. The inside and outside was immaculate and a lovely welcome pack included a bottle of wine was there to greet us on our arrival. The garden was fully enclosed which is what we needed for our cockapoo Harry. We spent lovely mornings sitting outside having our breakfast cuppas. We had a local called the marine which welcomed dogs . The beaches were great , we walked our dog there every day. We will be returning next year

    Everything that you could possibly need to make our stay comfortable was thought off and provided. The location was perfect and easy to walk the area- things were a lot closer than google maps suggested! Would 100% recommend

  • "Beautiful bungalow."

    Had everything we needed inside as well as a lovely secure garden for the dog and a bonus sea view. Excellent location in a quiet area but close to amenities. Liked that the kitchen appliances were all straightforward to use as well. Have already booked again for next year.
