J Broadbent -

Very well equipped, very clean, good parking, comfortable hesitation in recommending to our friends

B Waterfield -

lovely comfortable cottage in a great village location, walking distance to shops, pubs and beach, driving distance to places of interest. property was clean and comfortable, well stocked with kitchen equipment. quiet location. only recommendation would be to install a bigger fridge, possibly standard size fridge/freezer, useful for self catering arrangements, we struggled to store foods that we had taken with us from home and to store frozen food as there was only a small freezer compartment situated in the fridge. otherwise everything else about the property was faultless. the off road parking was also a bonus.

D Woodrow -

well suited to purpose - clean and well equipped.
