Nook Cottage has an unconventional layout with a rather steep staircase for elderley people but was warm and cosy. It was very conveniently situated near Post Office and Village Store and close to excellent eating facilities.
Very convenient for cliff top walks and interesting places nearby- the cottage was very clean and well equiped.
