The perfect place for a break. The cottage is beautiful and comfortable. The views are amazing and if you can tear yourself away from them, there are great walks along the coast or attractions further afield. The village shop is well stocked so no need to drive anywhere if you don't want to. I was a bit in doubt when booking this place to be honestRead more, but the photos and description really undersell this place Hide

Cottage was very quaint with lovely seaside touches. Location excellent for watching all the comings and goings at the harbour, or as a base for visiting the surrounding area. It was nice that milk, tea and coffee had been left for when we arrived.

This cottage is ideally situated, in the middle of a beautiful village, where the locals are extremely friendly and helpful. The house has everything you could possibly need, a home from home with many thoughtful extras and lots of sea related decor. The perfect place for a week by the sea.
