    A good old-fashioned British hotel, maintained in character. Friendly, helpful staff, though not too efficient.. Good food and drink. Very dog friendly. Beautiful location. Comfortable clean rooms. Slightly strange plumbing. Really nice place to stay for a couple of nights.

    Yes you can. You can walk along the cliff top by the beach - it's about a mile. Don't drive - the car parking charges have just increased at Joss!
