“Great holiday for me and my dogs”
Stayed here in October, the cottage was lovely and cosy. the views from the window were wonderful, never got tired of watching the tides. The cottage was perfect for my two dogs as we were able to just walk straight from the house, so nice not to have to drive to take them for their morning and evening walks. loved the high fences and gate for the back garden, perfect peace of mind. have already rebooked to come back, so much to do and see in the area
