“The house has amazing views of the sea from two sides – enhanced as the living area is upstairs. There are plenty of bed rooms and the house is close to the village, which has a harbour, pubs and shops. The river runs through the village in to the sea with a park along its side. A lovely place for a break.”

“Have just enjoyed a ladies group holiday at Beacon Cottage. The cottage was very comfortable and homely, with wonderful views. To our delight, we were treated to a display of Dolphins leaping in the sea from the kitchen window!! We took our dogs with us and enjoyed wonderful walks along the coastal paths and explored hidden beaches & coves along the way. The gardens were safe & secure for dogs and they had a wonderful time. We also found a couple of dog friendly places to eat nearby in Caemas Bay . We would love to come back! ”
