April 2017

Excellent quite location idea position for all beaches and the town

February 2017

It has all that you might need. The proximity to the beach (for those who want it) is excellent.

It's but a short walk to town with everything you could want. Great pubs and restaurants.

The internal stairs are a bit steep (unavoidably) but my 82 year old mother-in-law has coped well for two years here.

I recommend it to you.

August 2016

We felt right at home a soon as we arrived. Lovely location.

July 2016

A delightful well equipt cottage in a fabulous location.
