Beautiful. This is one of my favourite places in the UK. Beautiful views across to France on a clear day. Mobile phone thinks I'm in France for some reason, so be careful with roaming.

Pretty beach great for the children to explore. The waves can get a little rough so be careful with young children. The area is charming. Looking forward to many more summer days here.

Sorry but I do not know the Windsor Lodge. I am sure it will be lovely as St Margaret's is a beautiful place. It is quite hilly though so be prepared with good support shoes.
