We went on some interesting cross country routes, and found some delightful walks. The road up to the hill... More

We stayed at the Marston Lodge for a long weekend and thought the place was great. Our room overlooked the town and the beach and was well equipped with tea making facilities, table, armchairs and a comfortable bed. The shower was quite new but it needed a bit of getting used to although there was always plenty of hot water.... More

Lovely hotel, clean comfortable, welcoming friendly proprietors. Would definately recommend. Easy access by road, although steep hill from shops, so would need to be fit although very good taxi service.
