5 star review

Lovely Cottage and location. So peaceful. Every thing we needed was in there and complimentary coffee and shortbread went down a treat. Owners really lovely people and most certainly will be going back and highly recommend. Great for dogs as access off the garden straight onto shore.
Awww what fabulous photos! We are so glad to hear you had a wonderful stay and we look forward to welcoming you back.
