Great location and fully equipped. Very comfy bed mattresses and lounge and kitchen are home from home. Space limited in family bathroom and double bedrooms.w stairs x 3 could be an issue for those with limited mobility. Fabulous area and holiday. Loved our stay. Real and decorated Christmas tree for our December break was a delight. The aroma filled the house beautifully.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It is great to hear that your Christmas Stay at Fishermans Cottage was fabulous and that you loved it! Traditional fisherman's cottages can have slightly quirkier layouts and be on the smaller side compared to more modern buildings, but their character is also one of the many reasons that people love to stay here so much and the owner has ensured the property is as you say, fully equipped for their guests. For guests looking to book a property that may be more suited to those with limited mobility, we always try to ensure the description represents what guests can expect and will always be very happy to help guests picking the best property for their needs. We hope to see you back again. Lucy, Customer Services

Excellent location, stunning tasteful decor. Plenty of room for bigger parties and the three bathroom/shower room facilities are rare to find in such a property. Excellent, consistent and professional service form Aspects Holidays - so much so I would be reluctant to choose anyone else. Highly recommended property and service!
