Recent comment from a happy customer 'Fantastic time, immaculately clean, very comfortable & homely. Tess & Pete Smith were very kind & helpful.' We love this cottage by the sea and we will come back as long as we are able.

You have everything we need and there is lots of tourist information. The storage heating is by meter reading and deducted from damage deposit. The owners are nearby and do their own cleaning so the cottage is of a very clean nature.
