Nice, clean, spacious and well furnished cottage. But a bit isolated. Long walk to the beach and we needed to use our car to get to the local shops.

A very well appointed cottage in a wonderful area, there was everything you could need and more, my husband uses a stick after a hip operation and it was easy to get around, and the walk in shower was fab. I would have given a perfect score if there was a bigger bed, it was only a double and that was to small for us, I slept in the second bedroom, but I suppose its personal preference. Overall a fantastic place to stay.
