Great little apartment. It was a worker's cottage but has been successfully renovated to make it into a cute cottage. Colin was a fantastic host, providing lots of local information and responding to all requests quickly. Parking is right but we found a spot outside and the walk down into the harbour is not too difficult. Great stay.
