Great bach for the family. Good location and loved the little beach close by for the grandchildren as it was so safe, thanks

Lovely spot. So close to everything and lovely views. Debbie is a great host and keeps in touch with you to make sure you’re all sorted. Would recommend for big families as there is plenty of space. Couldn’t be happier with my experience
Diana Manson
A large and comfortable house perfect for a family group. Great location close to the water and to town. We really enjoyed our weekend staying in the Captains Cottage and would like to come back some time in summer to enjoy the kayaking.
