A gorgeous cottage in a great location. Cottage was extremely comfortable for two adults and two teens. It was a home from home fully stocked with everything needed to have a brilliant Christmas week including all the essentials to cook a Christmas dinner. Plenty of walks and things to do near by but also perfect for relaxing and unwinding.

Overall this was a fantastic cottage. It looks beautiful and has a lovely garden, games room and summerhouse, which was ideal for kids. The position is excellent with easy access to beaches and many other attractions. The local pub is well worth a visit. Obviously the age of the cottage limits the facilities but it is very well designed within thesRead moree limitations. Hide

Great cottage, we loved our stay here for the week. There were 5 adults a toddler and a baby, the garden is great for the little ones to play in and the pub is just a short walk away for the grown ups. Everything you need is there, the cottage and village is picture perfect.
