Quiet, rural location but can still see the sea. Very well equipped, warm cottage with lovely characterful features, beams, loved the stripped wood floors and rugs. Very comfy bed and lots of little touches and items that were appreciated. Especially the welcome pack with homemade cake and wine, a lovely start to our holiday.

The only real comment would be the bath, it's very slippy and the anti-slip mat slipped. It could cause a real problem if you're not too quick and steady on your feet. Maybe something more permanent to stop slipping. Other than that, we loved the place. Hope Woody's OK, he was our favourite!
