    Amazing hose in an amazing location. The type of place you go to escape the world but local shops are only 15 minutes away if you require them

    We booked the cottage for a family new year break, six adults and three children (ages 11, 4, 2), on arrival we were met by the owner who showed us around and went through heating controls, log fire fuel, and basic information. The cottage was immaculate on arrival and was done really with lots of Xmas decorations and a lovely tree in the downstairs living room. Recent reviews had mentioned lack of essential kitchen items, this must of been rectified as we did not struggle for any cooking, drinking or eating items. The views and position of the house could not be better in this location, all the bedrooms and both living rooms take full advantage. We were there during a pretty bad storm and the house was still lovely and warm (the underfloor heating was sometimes switched off during the day as it got quite warm when cooking). The local pub (Harbour inn) was very close and we used it a few times for lunch and an early evening drink, we found all the locals to be pleasant and we were given good information on were to go for shopping and days out etc. All in all we could not fault the house or the area at all, one tip is to take lots of food and drinks etc as the nearest supermarket is a 20 min drive, we planned this and during our stay only had to do one trip, there is a local filling station for basic essentials.

    The house is special the views beautiful the lack of a shop and choices to eat out locally are limited.the information from owner good. The only supermarket willing to deliver to the house is Asda. We are considering returning next year.

    We booked this villa mainly for its location and proximity to the beach and, in that, we were not disappointed. Having small children in our party meant that the beach became the biggest draw but it also became the biggest problem when dealing with wet kids clothes as there was no tumble dryer so we were entirely reliant on an indoor pulley or an outdoor airer. The kitchen only had a small hob with most of the room being taken up by an out of service Agga and cooking for 9 became a challenge. Mugs, glasses and, bizarrely, teaspoons, were in short supply for a large party but there were plenty knives, forks and crockery. Overall, our stay was comfortable and these minor annoyances were compensated for by the beautiful location of the villa and the lovely views.

    Totally brilliant the most wonderful holiday home and location. We would love to go back some time. Such a comfortable home with lovely furniture and the most comfortable beds ever. Georgous views from every window. The local people were so friendly and welcoming.
