As soon as we left Sunset Lodge after our holiday we wanted to go back. Even though the weather was pretty poor, the location of Sunset Lodge more than made up for the wind and the rain. What could be better than a bracing walk on the beach followed by Guinness and oysters in the Smuggler's Inn next door, then tottering the twenty yards back 'home' to lounge around in the very snug chalet (a converted shop) and watch the waves crashing onto the shore far below. If you want guaranteed sunshine, go to Spain; but if you prefer the romance of big turbulent skies and wild weather, then this is the place for you.
Mary, the landlady is a delight - warm, welcoming and as other guests have noted, she very kindly left some supplies ready for us on arrival. A thoughtful touch. She did, however, disappoint on one thing - when we were in touch by e-mail before the visit, she practically promised there would be an exciting air-sea rescue with people being winched up into helicopters hovering over the bay, but (thankfully!) it was not to be and the only air drama we saw was a crow chasing a seagull.
Sunset Lodge is small but there is plenty of space for two people; it is warm and comfortable and, of course it has that magnificent view. Recommended.More
