Lovely location within half hour or so of 3 fantastic beaches very dog friendly, only downside there are no walks from the cottage for an evening walk before bed for our dogs but otherwise very good

Reviewed by Dawn 13th September 2019

The cottage is in the middle of a busy livery yard. But once you get into the cottage you are very secluded from the yard with a lovely view across the Moor.

The Crikton Cottage was comfortable and clean. The added pleasure of a hot tub made the holiday even better. He garden was small but well enclosed for our dog. Situated in a quiet setting but close enough to explore the fantastic beaches. The bedroom was a good size, along with a welll stocked bathroom.
