    The cottage was well equipped and spacious. It is well situated for exploring the local beaches, villages and walks. We had no problems finding a parking space nearby either although it was not high season when we stayed there. Overall we would be happy to return.

    Your information does not mention that there is little parking along Cemetery Rd as the bit by the house is narrow. We DID manage to get a space somewhere in the road each night, however. The shower needs replacing. It is broken and taped up, therefore cannot be directed properly, flooding the bathroom. The kitchen cupboard R of the cooker has a strange smell, not drains, but musty and odd. The place needs a bit of TLC but on the whole, ideal for exploring such a beautiful part of the country. '
