          Only regret we did not stay longer!! Loved our accommodation, homely atmosphere all round. Owners were most accommodating. Food was great. location was quiet which was brilliant for us. Conveniently situated near to all places of interest.

          We received a very warm welcome and the facilities were fantastic! Our pooches were given free reign around the property and even had a swim. The dog friendly beach is very close and so is the start to a number of trails and bird hides....More

          We only had one night here and would plan to stay longer next time. It's in a lovely spot, secluded but with easy access to the town, so it's peaceful but convenient. Great service and hospitality. We'll be back!
