The location benefits from relative seclusion yet good facilities are no more than 10 minutes drive away. If you like pristine beaches, fabulous sea-views and value peace and quiet then I could not recommend this holiday-let more. The cottage is warm, clean and dry and provides all the domestic facilities you could reasonbly want. The owner was very helpful and friendly.

This remote location is perfect for getting away from it all and a good base for exploring the amazing history and landscape of the local area. The weather and scenery is constantly changing and the pace of life is a natural antidote to the 24/7, non-stop culture of modern life. In spite of the ridiculously early start and long drive to get here I felt immediately relaxed and on holiday from the moment we arrived. If you need to get away from it all this is an area that will leave you refreshed.
The cottage is simple but functional with the basics well catered for. Not much of a garden but the entire area is your 'garden' so not really an issue.
