A charming well-appointed cottage with lovely country views from the comfortable conservatory and plenty of space for up to four people. The only downside was that a car is essential for virtually any walk save one footpath opposite. The property is right on a road which is minor but local traffic is speedy along it.

The cottage is very comfortable well equipped with plenty of space in a nice location. It has everything you need with the added extra of the pump house which has its own little comforts to relax. It has an enclosed garden to relax in and dogs can be safe in. The only negative is that the front door is right on the main road, you can use the cottagRead moree next doors garden to exit but feel a bit awkward to go back and forth if people are staying there. This was only a minor negative for us though. Hide

The property is well-equipped with a lovely little garden and a conservatory making it ideal for both hot, sunny and cooler sunny days! The bedrooms and bathroom are very nice as is the kitchen. The living room is slightly dark. Although one doesn't notice the traffic noise the cottage is situated directly on a main road, onto which the front door Read moreopens directly. This can be scary, especially with small kids or dogs. The stairs are difficult to ascend and descend due to uneven steps. Hide

A comfortable cosy cottage with great views and a very dog friendly garden. Complete with quality towels and bedding. An added bonus Sky and a free landline and Wi-Fi. The cottage is central to a variety of great locations all within an hour. The beaches are fantastic.

Lovely cottage, real log fire. All the equipment you need. Great for us i.e. 2 adults and 3 dogs. The pumphouse is secluded and secure. Nice walk up through the adjacent woods. Generally a good location but you need a car, which is no problem.
