    This is a well equipped, comfortable, clean cottage but I do have mixed feelings about it. The top floor with it’s open plan kitchen, dining, living room is well equipped and very comfortable with a lovely balcony with rattan furniture and open views (nicer than the photo). The lower floor has a lovely bathroom with a large, powerful shower and bath. The 2 bedrooms are roomy with lots of storage but take some coat hangers. The main bedroom has what could be a very nice terrace but it needs attention: weeds are sprouting through the paving which is desperately in need of a jet wash. In terms of the setting, it is true that there are lovely waterside walks and a nice pub/restaurant 2 minutes away. However, the description fails to mention the boat repair and storage business that is right neck door and which has cars, boats and huge boat trailers coming and going all day long and which you have to navigate through to reach the cottage and park your car. Not quite the ‘peaceful’ setting described. We did have a good holiday there and enjoyed using the living area and the bottle of wine kindly left by the owner but overall feel it could be better and is a little overpriced.

    Lovely clean accommodation in lovely peaceful setting, we enjoyed a super holiday in a great area,the only thing is no place to put your shampoo or soap in the shower. We would definitely come back again.10⭐️

    Thought the equipment was very up to date and good, the downstairs had a lot of marks and lots of cobwebs around. Also couldn’t use the downstairs outside area as there was some kind of animal waste.

    A lovely cottage, central to where we wanted to be. It was very hot and had to keep doors shut as we were plagued by wasps. There was a welcome pack a nice bottle of red, thank you. The stars were amazing at night,could see the Milky Way and the next universe. Would appreciate a couple of coat hooks as you come in, but a minor... We would stay again, comfy, clean,well equipped, fun little place. Those stars really were amazing,loved nearby beaches too.
