The Studio was immaculate when we arrived and proved to be a great place to relax for a few days. Location was spot on as on short drive from the beach and small towns. The Winyard Gap Inn is lovely with good food and friendly service. Ideal for an evening meal and drink after a hard day of doing nothing!!!
