We had a fantastic family week in Shells Cottage, this cottage is perfect for families. The party consisted of us, our two children and partners and five granddaughters. The cottage accommodated us well, and the surrounding areas were a delight for the children, we discovered a play park at the end of the footpath by the cottage. My only criticism would be a lack if information of the local area in the cottage.
