I would agree with the other reviewer on here who was a little disappointed with the accommodation.We found our cottage ('Robin') well equipped and clean but very small(even for two) and some of the furniture is a lttle dated and tired. However, the location makes up for everything with a short walk to the private beach and direct access to the coast path. The owners are friendly, attentive and enthusiastic. There are some nice touches souch as home cooked meals and local produce available to buy.
I think the cottages are squarely aimed at dog and child friendly holidays and to that end i would say they are a great success
