  • We stayed one night in the bottom house, which was perfect for our group of four adults. It was cosy and comfortable, and the owners were very helpful. The only improvement we would suggest would be to place the outside chairs so as to better show off the stunning views (currently hidden by the hedge!) 5

  • The cottage we stayed in was very warm, extremely comfortable and very inviting. The historical aspects of the cottage were there to see and that made staying there even more special. The night sky was breathtaking as was the coastal view from inside and outside the cottage. The rural surrounding was soothing and seeing the sheep with their lambs was a highlight.Thank you for offering such outstanding accommodation in such a very special environment. 5
