We stayed here for 2 nights, travelling as a family with 3 kids.
Very friendly and helpful and Keith and Sue made us feel very welcome.
The 2 bedroom cottage was warm and cosy. Short walk to shops and café.
Kids LOVED the nearby park (opposite Happy Hens).
Would definitely recommend. We really enjoyed staying on the peninsula.
