An amazing cottage in a fantastic location; walks on the heath directly from the front of the house, and village shop, playground, community centre, pub & beach all just a short walk away. This is a real family home, with a nice selection of books and music and videos. The beds were all comfy and there was a great selection of crockery, pans, mugs,Read more and utensils in the kitchen so we could do some proper cooking. Nice selection of toys. A great socializing space in the kitchen/dining room. Hide
