  • "What a lovely little find in a great location!"

    The hosts of this flat had thought of every comfort, from fleecy throws for chilly toes to plentiful mugs and a lovely welcome pack. The village is ideally located to explore the area in all directions, the port down the hill is so beautiful. I’ve never lived in a flat so hearing others took a bit of getting used to but nothing of note. A few tweaks (dustpan and brush to clean the floor especially after a swim and Sandy toes/clothes, maybe softer bulbs in the lamps) but these are very minor on what is well thought out accommodation with home comforts galore. And the shower…. Hot and powerful to thaw frozen fingers (I do a lot of sea swimming!!) this was a last minute find after our pre booked cottage was cancelled on the day of travel and I have to say I was utterly delighted with our stay. And the neighbours are so so friendly too. The pub round the corner served the best gluten free fish and chips I have had for years. All in all a marvellous stay: and a big thank you to the hosts (I won’t mention the free potato picking post harvest on our walk, my back is still in recovery lol)

    Thank you for your comments and so glad I was able to help and that you enjoyed your break. I am just sorry I didn't respond as quickly as I should have. I do hope you are able to stay again in the future. Sharon x Property Owner
