Stayed in the attic spa suite. Was very clean. Roomy for an attic. Spa was great. Quiet, cosy room. Stairs a bit steep to get up to room but was worth the climb. Bed was firm but comfy. Lots of pillows on bed. Close to town and beach

We came on the last minute. Very friendly people, the cottage is very nicely equipped. Beautiful garden and very close to the beach. We needed a room with access foe a mobility scooter, that was a bit problematic as the sliding door had a small step too. A small ramp would help

We would like to thank you for staying with us as a last minute option. It is unfortunate that our disabled cottage was occupied at the time as this cottage has ramps, and a walk in shower with height adjustable shower chair and hand rails. Maybe in future you could utilise our facilities which would be more suitable to your... More

My partner and I stayed 1 night in the Spa Suite (5) in Early June. It was cold outside but the heating and Spa Bath inside was perfect. The receptionist was lovely and we were lucky to meet their two sweet puppies as well. Overall expectations exceeded and would visit again!

We stayed in the attic spa room, it was very clean with attention to detail. Lots of towels and the spa was lovely. Little kitchenette for making coffee & tea. It is slightly dated so that is the only reason I didn't give it a 5.
