We had a kitchen to prepare meals if we wanted a nice living room to chill and several bathrooms. We also booked one day of surfing and even though there were not... More

Bought the package for the August bank holiday (3 nights, 3 lessons) and had a lot of fun. The people are really welcoming, friendly and funny in this place. I really enjoyed everything: the activities (surf and kayaking), the group, the place, the barbecue, the night out... Perfect!

Equipment is good and time in water is just right. I will definitely be back, loved it. I'm a beginner surfer, I've taken a... More

Great front of house staff, great equipment, but the guide (Brian) was just going through the motions. Trip was good, but it could have been so much better with a little effort on his part. Minimal information on the location or environment, and I'm not sure if he would have noticed if a guest got into difficulties.

Well placed B&B, very welcoming and helpful staff. Simple en-suite room, plenty of hot water, clean & tidy, with common room next door, and use of the kitchen downstairs. Organise great surfing trips with all the gear and lessons, and welcomed home with hot drinks and biscuits, nice touch!
