We arrived at the Cliff Cottage late in the afternoon. Dot welcomed us and went quickly through all the paperwork to make sure hat we have enough time for a nice walk on the cliffs to enjoy the sunset which was a very nice touch on arrival. Dot and Chuck were lovely and gave us good recommendations for restaurants, viewpoints, activities and even tuck tuck transporation from town in case we didn't want to drive.
The spacious room was well equipped and clean featuring a comfy bed. The decor is in line with the beautiful old cottage which is situated just a few steps from the access to the world renowned cliff path and withing 15 min walking distance to the center. Breakfast was delicious. Overall we had a wonderful time during our two nights stay.
