Cosy and comfortable, we were happy there. Easy to get to beaches and good walks nearby. The Red Lion is a lovely pub. Nice little courtyard out the back - owner Andrew very helpful. Great place.

Lovely cottage on its own apart from the owners cottage attached. Complete privacy given. Very clean, well equipped, and extra cleaning materials left. Shower was really good, bed was comfortable. Be aware stairs are narrow! Would need a car to do much but theres plenty to do in the area. Would definitely stay again

Cottage was in a quiet location but ideal spot to drive out nice and central to drive along east or west coast. A pub is close by and a short drive to a spar. Cottage is sweet, comfy bed and decent shower too. Owners gave us total privacy and we enjoyed our week
