We had a lovely week. From this location we were able to visit most of the local beaches, sites and towns. The Cottage is a gorgeous property and we felt very at home from the moment we arrived, the Thatched Inn is perfect and we shopped at the local allotments for our fruit and veg. We will definitely wish to return next year.Mr Simon Russell - 6th September 2017
