Best accommodation ever. All rooms were decorated to an extremely high standard,the breakfasts with such a superb choice were excellent. The location was ideal, with access to the coast only a five minute walk away. Pat and Whiskey are a lovely couple who made us more than welcome. We will definately be going back.
