My husband booked me a surprise weekend break at Fennel Cottage for my birthday. We arrived at around 8.30pm on a Friday night after a four hour drive in the pouring rain. I was tired and hungry, it was dark and cold. All I wanted to do was get something to eat & go to bed. We went straight to the pub opposite as we couldn't find anywhere else (see other review). The cottage felt warm & inviting when we returned and had a chance to look around, I realised just how nice it was. It was clean, tidy and had everything you could possibly need for a weekend stay. The bed was comfortable and the blackout curtains and lack of noise meant we had a good night's sleep. The showers were hot & powerful and the kitchen was perfect. The best part was when I got up the next morning & realised just how close we were to the beach! I hadn't noticed the night before that there was a balcony in the dining room looking straight out over the beach. The sun was shining & although it was cold, we were able to sit out & admire the view. We bumped into the caretaker on our way out & he was friendly & keen to know that we had everything we needed. A lovely stay - just a shame it was only for a weekend.
