Lovely clean cottage perfect for a couple. Would have liked to have had a ironing board and washing machine. Welcome hamper was a very nice touch. Very well stocked with utensils crockery and even umbrellas. It is a great location however it is at the top of a very steep hill which wasnt a problem for us but could be for others.

Very well maintained, clean property. Owner made us feel welcome and even left us some provisions to start us off. This property wouldn't be suitable for anyone with mobility issues as there are several steps down to the property.
