Stayed here last summer. Accomodation very basic outdated decor but clean. Not an ideal or safe place for young children as you had to watch out for the cars going past the front of your house to the other cottages beside you. No enclosed garden and back patio garden ridiculously small. Not much privacy either from owner as she always... More

Although the decor may be a little dated, this just adds to the charm of the place. There is a tennis court and... More

The owners are always happy to give information for excursions. It is our... More
