Great holiday with quiet coasts within walking distance. Our stay was lovely and comfortable in this property - we were able to explore and stay socially distant easily

A great house in a great position close to some good walks (we were there in December) and we loved the fact that the Square & Compass pub and the tearoom were within five minutes walk. The house itself has a good layout with modern wood flooring. The kitchen is very practical.

Lovely, single-storey cottage in a peaceful location on the edge of the village. The large, open plan kitchen/living/dining space makes it ideal for a group of family or friends. Easy access to the Coastal Path for walking and a short stroll to the popular village pub which serves excellent beer, cider and pies!

Cottage itself was very nice. Good sized bedrooms, comfortable beds, well stocked. Nice kitchen. Lovely garden with patio area and lawned area for games. Games and books provided. Very quiet village but no pathways which was a concern with a buggy so just beware with young children.
