    Fantastic cottage, very well presented. Remote location & access lane extremely narrow.

    We had a very nice stay at Sweet Bay cottage, we found it a little remote and had to drive to everything including the pub which was not within walking distance. It had everything you needed within the cottage and was equipt to a very high standard. The garden was very small and because it was at the front of the property it wasn't very private as the owners cottage is directly opposite Sweet Bay. It is a lovely property just not quite right for us!
