The welcome packs were a lovely touch. We loved the luxury of the hot tub and watching the sun set from it. Everything was clean, fresh and smelt amazing! Excellent dining recommendations by the hosts; The Fox for Sunday lunch was delicious, The Lamb and Flag serve a great dinner and West Farm for lunch was both delicious and had amazing views from the cliff tops. The walk down to the beach is beautiful and the huge rocks to climb on were a hit with my 5 year old. We didn’t feel the need to travel any further afield, just spent our time relaxing and slowing the pace down. I fully recommend the property and we will definitely be back.

The welcome pack was very generous with treats for the adults, kids and the dogs! The sea views from the garden and kitchen are stunning. We enjoyed using the hot tub and it was nice to meet the owner when she popped around mid week to check the chemicals in hot tub. The garden was very secure which was important to us because of the dogs and although there was some building work going on next door the neighbour was very friendly and it didn't really impact on our holiday. Thank you Freya for your comment. We try really hard to add small touches to make your holiday that extra bit special so I'm glad to hear they were enjoyed.
