Fiona has created some super self catering accomodation. The level of comfort is high; from the quality sofas to the super soft linen on the wonderful brass bed. The personal touches to each room make it home like and the little extras, particularly in the bathroom, were very much appreciated. The hot water from the kitchen tap was super heated... More

We stayed 3 nights in the self contained flat. It was a great base for exploring this lovely area, though we could happily have spent more time just looking out of the window! The property is perched on the hillside overlooking the rest of the village and has a superb view over the bay. The kitchen was very well equipped... More

We stayed in the self catered flat attached to the main house. Great view over the harbour. Everything was clean and tidy on arrival with all you might expect including dishwasher. Fiona the owner was very friendly. You are expected to clean on departure.

Breakfast was great, and we just loved having our own wee apartment to just kick back and relax properly at the end of a hectic... More
