I stayed here in mid-July 2013 with my two teenage boys and a friend of theirs. I was so lucky to find this little gem. I booked late (probably in March) and White Lamb was calling my name. The cottage was extremely clean and well maintained. We had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners and her daughter and you can just see the pride in them all as they talked about the work and the time they put into these fabulous cottages.
They are so close to the beach that it's easy to run back to grab a drink, use the bathroom or have lunch in the shaded outside area under an umbrella. While the cottage kitchens are truly cottage kitchens, they were clean and provided the basics. You won't be able to cook full meals in the kitchen due to the lower power of the stove but there are BBQ grills available outside, which we took full advantage of.
The baked goods and coffee were such a nice treat for us each morning. The kids enjoyed the baked goods while I enjoyed the coffee after my morning runs on the expansive beach.
I would go back in a heartbeat. I loved being further away from the pier this year as it was quieter and much darker and relaxing at night. The kids didn't mind being far from the pier either as they had wifi and a TV to watch.
Thank you for this great trip! Book it!!
