    Very cosy chalet (we were just family of 4), lots to do in the surrounding area, big beaches and nice forest walks. The little bar / restaurant on site was great, food excellent. On site pool was a bonus when weather poor (we stayed February).

    Lovely peaceful location, comfortable lodge, unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side on this occasion, if it had been the beach was just a stones throw away and would have been lovely to visit

    Lovely cabin in a beautiful quiet location. Nice walks and only a short distance from sandy hill bay. Cabin is great for all the family, children especially enjoyed the onsite pool. Easy transaction booked online very hassel free. Dogs welcome too but aren’t allowed to be left on the cabin unattended. Only issue we had was that both double bed mattresses were terribly uncomfortable think they definatly need replacing, also the dish washer mustn’t be working too well as we had to rewash most of the kitchen utensils and pots before using as they weren’t very clean. The on-site restaurant was lovely with fresh homecooked meals. But overall a lovely location and would go again.

    This is a comfortable lodge in a superb position with fantastic views. The site has a swimming pool and you can eat out there if you’re so inclined. We were blessed with glorious weather so took full advantage of the balcony. As other people have noted some equipment would benefit from updating but this did not spoil our break at all.
